Dr. Andrew Lee earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Los Angeles and his medical degree from Howard University in Washington, D.C. He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Howard University Hospital and further training at George Washington University-affiliated hospitals, followed by a fellowship in hand surgery at the Hand Center of Houston and microvascular training at Baylor College of Medicine.
In practice since 1992, Dr. Lee is board certified in orthopedic surgery with additional qualification in surgery of the hand. He has extensive experience in both hand and general orthopedic surgery, with special expertise in arthroscopy. Patients say he takes time to carefully explain procedures and answer questions, and they report good outcomes with fast recovery times.
Dr. Lee is a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and a member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. He is a reviewer for the Journal of Hand and Microvascular Surgery and has authored many hand- and orthopedic-related publications. He is considered a pioneer in the area of endoscopic decompression for peripheral nerves.
Outside of his practice, Dr. Lee is a musician and has devoted much of his time over the years to medical missionary work abroad.
