Dr. Lee joined Nebraska Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine in June 2017.  Prior to working for Nebraska Ortho, Dr. Lee practiced at Hays Orthopedic in Hays, Kansas.  He was born in South Korea and emigrated with his family to New Zealand at the age of seven.  He received his doctor of medicine from the University of Auckland School of Medicine. This was followed by an internship and residency at Auckland Hospitals through the NZ Orthopedic Association training program.  In 2005, Dr. Lee was admitted as Fellow of Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, which is the Australian and New Zealand equivalent to United States Board Certification.   He was the recipient of the prestigious AO Foundation International’s orthopedic trauma fellowship which was split between Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine and Harvard Combined Orthopedic Program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.  Dr. Lee also went on to complete an arthroplasty fellowship with the Harvard Combined Orthopedics Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.  Dr. Lee is only one of two fellowship trained subspecialist arthroplasty surgeons in Lincoln, and is excited to offer comprehensive tertiary joint care to the community.

While in Boston, Dr. Lee took up a passion for Beantown sports and is an avid Patriots, Red Sox and Celtics fan.  He is married and has a daughter.  In his free time he enjoys skiing, golf, and precious time with his family.
