Yuri M. Lewicky, M.D.

Sports Medicine, Arthroscopic Surgery of the Shoulder and Knee

Yuri Lewicky, M.D., is a board certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon educated in Sports Medicine. He has expertise in the surgical and medical care for all structures of the musculoskeletal system directly affected by participation in sporting activity. Dr. Lewicky has extensive training in the surgical and nonsurgical treatment of shoulder and knee injuries, arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery and treatment of athletic injuries. He is a member of the Sports Medicine Center at NAO and practices alongside Joel Rohrbough, M.D.

His training includes fellowships in arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine, which included caring for the San Diego Padres and the Division 1 athletic teams of San Diego State University and University of California, San Diego. Recently, he earned an added qualification: a Subspecialty Certificate in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine, administered by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Lewicky also has a long history of serving as the orthopaedic physician for Northern Arizona University Athletics and local high schools.

In treating patients, Dr. Lewicky strives to provide them with what he would expect in a physician: clear communication, a thorough understanding of the condition and treatment, and when necessary, the highest level of surgical skill. Through past personal experiences, he understands the enormity of a potentially life-changing injury, and the importance of returning to normal activities as soon as possible.

In his free time, he escapes outdoors and enjoys alpine skiing, extreme backcountry hiking, water sports and spending time with family.

Patient Testimonials

”I have had just 2 appointments with Dr. Lewicky so far. Both were very good. I am sure I will be seeing him several more times in the near future since I need surgery on my shoulder. He comes highly recommended to me for this by other medical professionals, including my primary care physician and my physical therapist.“

K.C.

”Dr. Lewicky is salient on all levels. As an athlete yoga teacher 25 years he took time to answer my questions and honestly explain what I was going to experience with my surgery. Straightforward but his smile is as genuine as his medical care.“

J.

”I can already tell Dr. Lewicky did an excellent job on my surgery. I appreciate his good bedside manner, and I feel confident in his expertise. I appreciate that he takes all the time I need to understand my condition. I never feel rushed! I have recommended him to several people and will continue to do so! The whole staff is professional, friendly and helpful.“
