Dr. Christie Lehman
Dr. Lehman is a former college athlete who, like many, "overdid it." During her many years of playing soccer, she suffered severe knee injuries that required multiple reconstructive surgeries and lengthy recoveries.
Not enough can be said about the importance of injury prevention. We now know that youths who suffer an ACL injury, for example, are likely to develop arthritis in their knee by the time they are 30. Many of us end up paying the price for injuries suffered in our earlier years. There are more people than ever experiencing pain and limitation because of old injuries and wear and tear conditions.
Dr. Lehman is very passionate about finding nonsurgical treatment options for those, young and old, who are looking to still enjoy an active life.

"Wonderful person, doctor and treatment!, After three cortisone injections into my shoulder over a 12 month period, it was time to go the next step and have the stem cell/PRP procedure. Now, three months later my shoulder is dramatically improved. Not sure how long it will be relatively painless, but for now ,I’m very, very happy!"
"Five Stars - Dr Lehman is always willing to listen to my concerns and do everything she can to relieve my pain. I am so thankful that my doctor referred me to her...waiting now to hear from an orthopedic group but she assured me she was only a phone call away. Thankful for her!"
"Caring professional - After seeing Dr. Christie Lehman a few times, she has consistently been caring and professional. She listens to you and takes her time. I highly recommend her!"
"Injured shoulder - Dr. Lehman treated both shoulders with injections. The results were excellent, especially since no other doctor could help."
"Reovered use of shoulder without surgery and extensive recovery time, how thrilled I am with how the stem cell/platelets treatment you provided has restored my shoulder rotator cuff tear to 85% or better of former use! I recently chain sawed and stacked about 20 logs for firewood, happily dig in the garden, lift heavy objects, and can even sleep on that shoulder."
