Dr. Lee specializes in total joint replacement, knee arthroscopy, and sports injuries as well as general orthopedics. Born and raised in Texas, he has been in private practice with Dr. Cecil Christensen since 1989. Working Together, Never Pressured In all cases, Dr. Lee will try conservative treatments first. Only if they fail will he discuss the option of joint replacement surgery. "Patients should never feel pressured to do a procedure. There are many options available for hip and knee pain, but it's never something you ever have to do. I will not tell you it's time to have surgery. It is a decision for you to make. I'm here to make sure you're informed about all of your options, and make them available to you. It takes us working in tandem to get the best result. We're a team."Easy going, informative and most importantly, thorough, Dr. Lee has been practicing in Houston for 24 years.
