Granite Orthopaedics

W. Lee Richardson, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon Specializing in Hand and Upper Extremity

“I became interested in orthopaedics after I sustained an injury as a high-school athlete. My interest in helping others combined perfectly with my fascination for how the human body functions. I enjoy helping my patients regain their independence and ability to interact with the world around them by treating their hand and upper extremity injuries and conditions.”

“Every patient is different. I explain conditions and situations fully to each patient and involve them in the decision-making process. Most patients have a pretty good idea what their problem is and how it is affecting their life. My job is to guide them to the best solution for their particular situation. I help my patients understand their condition so that together, we can make it better.”

In his free time, Dr. Richardson enjoys being with his family and playing basketball. He is also involved in his children’s athletic pursuits and an active member of his church.
