A Boston native, Dr. Larry Lee studied Biology at Washington University in St. Louis, where he competed as a college athlete with the crew team.
He received his medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. While at DUCoM, he was involved in medical policy as the medical student representative to the Pennsylvania Medical Society and in his “spare” time, he volunteered at free clinics in the community. It was during this time that he developed his love for orthopaedics. He returned to Boston to continue his training at Tufts Medical Center as an orthopaedics resident. While orthopaedic trauma and joint replacements were exciting opportunities, spine surgery ultimately drew him in.
Dr. Lee pursued this love of spine surgery by completing his fellowship in Spine Surgery at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. This unique opportunity allowed him to train under the direction of both world renowned orthopaedic and neurosurgery spine surgeons. Cross-trained in various subspecialties of spine, he is particularly fascinated with spinal deformity and minimally invasive surgery. In his time off, he enjoys hiking and is an avid runner, having completed 7 marathons and countless other road races.
