Board Certified Plastic and Hand Surgeon
CAQ in Surgery of the Hand

Dallas-based hand and plastic surgeon, Dr. Joshua Lemmon, joined the Regional Plastic Surgery practice in 2007. Dr. Lemmon has a focused practice on plastic surgery and surgery of the hand, wrist, and microsurgery. He has a special interest in nerve compression (carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome), arthritis of the hand and wrist, wrist arthroscopy and minimally invasive upper extremity surgery, hand trauma and fractures, and complex upper extremity reconstruction.

Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Dr. Lemmon received a bachelor's degree in chemistry and was an Academic All-American football player for the University of Dayton Flyers (Dayton, Ohio). In 2001, he earned his medical degree at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and was an invited member of Alpha Omega Alpha, a medical honor society reserved for the top 10 percent of the medical students.

In 2006, Dr. Lemmon completed an integrated plastic surgery residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and received honors for excellence in teaching. He then completed additional fellowship training in Surgery of the Hand, Upper Extremity, and Microsurgery at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Orthopaedics. This combination of orthopaedic and plastic surgery training permits an all-inclusive approach to management of bony and soft-tissue problems of the hand and upper extremity.

Dr. Lemmon has presented at national meetings and has published in peer-reviewed national journals. He is a candidate member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery.

With a continued interest in education, Dr. Lemmon remains involved with the prestigious Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern, training residents and fellows the art of hand surgery. He is a vocal advocate for hand surgeons in the Dallas area.
