Jason E. Lake, MD
Dr. Lake is an orthopaedic surgeon whose practice is focused on foot and ankle as well as general orthopaedic injuries. His foot and ankle fellowship training has allowed him to treat complex foot and ankle disorders, including but not limited to deformity, arthritis, sports and cartilage injuries, and traumatic injuries. He is committed to his continuing education in order to deliver the best patient care possible. Though an orthopaedic surgeon, he believes that operative treatment is only appropriate after conservative measures have failed.
