Dr. Charles Lettvin is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who practices general orthopedics. He sees patients of all ages, from children to older adults, for the range of musculoskeletal conditions. Dr. Lettvin has extensive experience in knee and shoulder arthroscopy, ankle arthroscopy, hip and knee replacements and fracture repairs in both the arms and legs.

A high school and college basketball player, Dr. Lettvin experienced orthopedic injuries himself as a teenager. His admiration for the doctors who provided care for him and enabled him to resume playing sports led him to want to become an orthopedic surgeon. In providing care, Dr. Lettvin sets out to solve patients’ problems in the least invasive fashion possible. He combines excellent diagnostic abilities with strong communication skills to identify the problem and to inform patients about the treatment process. His goal is to return patients to an active lifestyle and to get them functioning as optimally as they can.

When he is not working, Dr. Lettvin delights in being with his wife and two children. He also enjoys golfing. His love of the game gives him added appreciation of the importance of healthy joints and helps fuel his determination to improve his patients’ conditions. He is an avid sports fan and serves as a team doctor for Deerfield High School.
