Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 05, 2012
Spine Treatment Centers of America (Spine Treatment Centers) is pleased to announce that it will be working together with Dr. Kenneth Lee in Sugar Land, Texas. Spine Treatment Centers features leading orthopedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons and interventional pain management specialists who provide neck and back pain sufferers convenient access to the customized diagnosis and treatment they need, with a focus on advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques.
Kenneth Lee, M.D., board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, operates near Houston, Texas with a goal of providing patients with state of the art treatment and medical technologies in the treatment of various spine conditions. Dr. Lee specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery for spinal deformity, degenerative disc disease, lumbar and cervical pathologies, spinal stenosis, osteoporosis and spondylolisthesis.
Dr. Lee’s medical philosophy involves taking a conservative approach toward spinal treatment, and opting for surgical solutions when all non-surgical methods have failed.
Dr. Lee received his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Biological Sciences from Duke University. He proceeded to earn his MD from the Duke University School of Medicine where he graduated with honors. His graduate medical education continued with a surgery internship and orthopedic surgery residency, both at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He then completed a spine surgery fellowship at the University of California at Los Angeles Medical Center.
In addition to receiving numerous professional awards and media coverage, Dr. Lee has also published and presented various medical research projects. He was inspired to become an orthopedic surgeon by his passion for athletics - exemplified by his high school football experience as a linebacker on a championship team - and the relationship between anatomy, form and function.
“Dr. Lee’s expertise in neck and back pain treatment give Sugar Land patients a valuable resource,” said Sam Bailey, Ph.D., chairman of Spine Treatment Centers of America. “We are proud to work with such a fine orthopedic spine surgeon.”
