Excellent doctor! Very smart. Described my problem in terms I understood.
Dr. Lee is exceptional! My spouse were both extremely impressed with her. She is bright, and shows how much she cares about the quality of care I received.
PA was good, physical therapist was great, doctor didn´t seem to have time to discuss with me.
I am in the military, trying to get insurance to cover right hip - only want Dr. Lee to do the surgery AWESOME!!!
Because she was recommended by my doctor, I would recommend her, but I think some of her info. was inaccurate.
Dr. Lee was very kind & I felt I received the highest quality of care possible. Thank you!

“Every person and every hip is unique. I enjoy working with patients to develop a treatment plan that best fits the individual and is in line with his or her goals. In order to be effective, it has to be a team approach.”
“Hip preservation is an exciting, rapidly growing area of Orthopedic surgery. The pelvis and hip joint are incredibly complex 3-D structures that require strength and stability, but also flexibility in order for us to walk, run, dance, play sports, etc. I enjoy the puzzle of working through the anatomic, biomechanical and biological factors that need to be in balance for a well-functioning hip joint.”
