Meet Michael Lewis

Biography

Dr. Michael Lewis is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who specializes in sports medicine. He has been a consultant to the Chicago Wolves, the Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Bulls, with whom he earned two championship rings during the 1996-1998 seasons. In addition, he has treated numerous world-class athletes from several continents, including an Olympic gold medal winner. Dr. Lewis’ practice includes advanced arthroscopic procedures on the knee and shoulder. His own contributions to the development of the field include the invention of a widely used device used to pare tissue between bones during arthroscopic surgery.

Influenced by the idealism of the Nobel Peace Prize recipient Dr. Albert Schweitzer,  Dr. Lewis chose to become a physician himself in order to help make the world a better place. His practice merges orthopedic care with patient counseling. Bringing a high level of empathy and intuition to his interactions with patients, he seeks to get to know them personally and to answer all their questions. An avid and nationally ranked tennis player, Dr. Lewis personally understands the issues that are important to an athlete seeking medical treatment. He also is an accomplished photographer who has published three books.

Philosophy of Care

It’s important to focus on the whole patient rather than simply being an excellent technician. I have always loved the practice of medicine and feel honored to take care of patients.
