I love Dr. Lewis! We found out I had Chondrosarcoma in September of 2016. Dr. Lewis performed an internal hemipelvectomy on me in October. Dr. Lewis and her team were absolutely amazing. I cannot express how thankful we were/are for them and their knowledge. It's amazing what she is able to do....more
