My Hero! The BEST and would and have referred to many. Best surgeon, bedside manner, and Dr.. she is BRILLIANT!
in Crystal Springs, MS |
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. Definitely a life saver. We go back in April for my 6 month scans and I should be able to walk without an assistive device then!!
