Lewis L. Shi, MD

Lewis Shi, MD, is an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in shoulder and elbow injuries. He maximizes patients' non-operative management prior to considering surgery. If necessary, he offers minimally invasive (arthroscopic) and open procedures that are appropriate for the patient's disorders.

Dr. Shi's research focuses on the molecular basis of rotator cuff tear and biomechanics of shoulder arthritis. He also is part of several national and international multi-center studies to improve diagnostic and treatment protocols of shoulder injuries. Dr. Shi has published more than 55 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 10 book chapters.

In addition to his clinical and research work, Dr. Shi teaches medical students, residents and fellows. He has won numerous teaching awards and values his role as an educator secondary only to his role as the patient's advocate.
