Dr. Lewis began practicing orthopedic surgery in 2000 after earning his medical degree from the Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. His internship and residency at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York prepared him for two successive fellowships – one in hand and elbow surgery and another in shoulder surgery, arthroscopy and sports medicine. Dr. Lewis joined MOS after completing his fellowships. Committed and focused, he has published numerous articles and given many lectures on related topics including carpal tunnel syndrome and injuries in athletes. Voted 'Top Doctor' by Castle Connolly. Dr. Lewis treats both simple and complex hand and elbow disorders, which often involve sports related issues. He has expertise in wrist arthroscopy and minimally invasive hand surgery.

Dr. Lewis' Care Philosophy
Since I completed separate fellowships in Hand/Microsurgery and Sports Medicine, I work closely with my Physician assistant Joe Torres to coordinate care in the office and assist me in surgery. I believe in using minimally invasive techniques for treatment of carpal and cubital tunnel syndrome, thumb basal joint arthritis, trigger fingers, and Dupuytren's contracture of the hand. My background in Sports Medicine allows me to participate in the care of athletes all the way from local high schools to collegiate and professional levels, with early return to activity as the goal. Returning people back to their favorite sport or activity is something I'm very proud of. Interacting with my patients and being able to use a mix of science, art, and skill to make dramatic improvements in their lives is what I like most about being an orthopedist.
