A year ago Dr. Lee performed surgery on my pinky finger knuckle. It was a 'boxers fracture' and the break was pretty bad with my knuckle indented about a cm and was broken into a few pieces. I was worried for awhile about while it healed but Dr. Lee and the hand rehab specialist recommended (who was amazing) reassured me everything was normal, and a year later I am extremely pleased with the results. A big thank you to Dr. Lee and the staff for getting me my hand back to normal.

Dr Lee and his team are very caring and professional. They leave no question unanswered. I was in excruciating pain with my knees for 5 years. Dr Lee did knee replacement on my right knee woke from the surgery feeling great with so much less pain than I expected. Can't wait until I can get the left knee done
in Glendale, CA |
I had a total shoulder replacement with Dr. Lee. He has excellent bedside manners and explains everything extra-carefully, and he is super attentive during the recovery time. The pain I had been enduring for years was instantly gone right after the surgery and is still gone now, 9 months later. I was concerned that the surgery would leave an ugly scar on my shoulder but Dr. Lee was so good that the scar is barely noticeable. This was one of my happiest medical experiences ever.
