About Dr Lee

Dr. Lee began practicing orthopedic medicine following his fellowship in spine surgery at the University of California, Los Angeles. He received his medical degree from the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency at the University of California, San Diego Medical Center.

He is a board-certified member of the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the North American Spine Society.

Often, recovery from orthopedic conditions, particularly spine problems, requires hard work. The combination of Dr. Lee’s sincere desire to understand your particular situation, your ability to trust your physician, a little patience and hard work will assist you in returning to an active lifestyle. His concern for his patients helps accelerate the patient healing process.

Dr. Lee believes in developing a genuine relationship based on mutual respect and trust, and at Golden State Orthopedics & Spine you have the opportunity to learn about and discuss your spinal problem with Dr. Lee and receive leading-edge treatment in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

I was out of the surgery center, and returned to my office fast, and overall have had an excellent outcome. Dr. Lee has been attentive and efficient. As a chiropractor, I will have no hesitation referring my surgical cases to Dr. Lee.
