Bio

Brett Lewellyn, MD, is an orthopedic surgeon with the Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute. He is board certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and holds additional certification to perform surgery of the hand and fingers. His areas of practice include all aspects of upper extremity orthopedic surgery extending from the shoulder to the fingertips. This includes sports-related and traumatic injuries to the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers as well as chronic conditions in these areas such as arthritis.

Hand Specialist

As patients with conditions and injuries of the hand and fingers begin to experience severe pain, loss of mobility and diminished quality of life, they may need the care and experience of a hand specialist like Dr. Lewellyn.

Nonsurgical treatments may be recommended prior to a decision to proceed with surgery. After a thorough examination and evaluation, Dr. Lewellyn might suggest one or more nonsurgical approaches such as physical therapy, prescription medication management and injections. If these do not lead to improvement, he will review next steps and advise if surgery is the best solution.

Dr. Lewellyn's Training

After serving on active duty in the United States military, Dr. Lewellyn earned his medical degree from the University of Vermont in Burlington. Following medical school, he completed an orthopedic surgery residency at Orlando Health followed by a fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery at Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa.

About Dr. Lewellyn: Training the Next Generation of Doctors

In addition to his clinical duties, Dr. Lewellyn is program director of Orlando Health's orthopedics department hand and upper extremity fellowship and assistant program director of the orthopedic surgery residency. He is integral in the development and implementation of the hospital's orthopedic surgery curriculum; directly involved with the daily training and education of orthopedic surgical residents and fellows; and serves on essential hospital committees. Among his accolades, he has received the Attending of the Year award twice.

Dr. Lewellyn also holds faculty positions with Florida State University and the University of Central Florida and is active in research, including various prospective and retrospective studies focusing on ailments and injuries of the upper extremity.
