I was one of the 20% of patients who overall don't have inadequate outcomes of replacement knee surgery as reported nationally. While I don't fault Dr. Lee specifically for my negative outcome, I was incredibly disappointed by his underwhelming concern for this outcome and his lack of professional curiosity to understand why this happened. I have since consulted with several specialists in failed knee replacements who have diagnosed nerve compression as the culprit, which Dr. Lee completely missed.

My primary care physician strongly recommended Dr. Lee to perform a total hip replacement on me. Dr. Lee and his staff Bella and Laura are outstanding and extremely easy to work with. I was well prepared for what to expect and the procedure went exactly a described. 4 weeks out and I am back to walking 10,000 steps a day. They are very good at responding to all questions via phone or email and scheduling is relatively easy. I cannot recommend Dr. Lee highly enough.

After a knee replacement from another doctor, I developed arthrofibrosis-scar tissue of the joint. I was in constant pain and my daily activity level diminished. Dr. Lee performed an arthroscopic procedure called synovectomy and guided me through intense recover that resulted in my activity level returning to normal. I am forever grateful.

Dr. Lee recommended to me by golfing colleague. Singular visit, so far, Dr. Lee explained, clearly, the three options available for pain reduction, including knee replacement. Accepted first option, cortisone, which relieved all pain.Other options still on the table for future. Very personable, experienced Doctor. Thanks you Dr Lee.
