Sports Medicine, Arthroscopic Surgery of the Shoulder and Knee

Yuri Lewicky, M.D., is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeon with extensive training in the surgical and nonsurgical treatment of shoulder and knee injuries. His expertise is in arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery and treatment of athletic injuries.

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.

answers.“

”He was really understanding and really helpful. He (Dr. Yuri M. Lewicky at Northern Arizona

and use surgery as a last resort.“
