Dr Lewno then came to Michigan as part of the University of Michigan’s Sports Medicine Fellowship where he was an acting team physician for both University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University while also completing University of Michigan’s Family Medicine Faculty Development Institute certification program for medical educators. He continues his passion for taking care of athletes as a team physician for Eastern Michigan University, consultant to MPerform, and as a volunteer national team physician for USA Swimming.

Dr Lewno’s medical practice focuses on non-surgical management of sports medicine conditions as well as disorders of joints, tendon, and nerves. He has a particular clinical interest in endurance athletes, performing artists, and the application of musculoskeletal ultrasound for complicated and challenging diagnoses. His goal is simple: help you get back to activities you are passionate about.
