Dr. Lehman is a former college athlete who, like many, “overdid it.” During her many years of playing soccer, she suffered severe knee injuries that required multiple reconstructive surgeries and lengthy recoveries.
In 1996 she attended Wake Forest University, where she played on the soccer team and majored in physics and computer science. Following college, she went to Ohio State University for medical school, following in her father’s footsteps. Instead of Orthopedic Surgery, like her father, she pursued further training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Virginia, finishing in 2009.
Dr. Lehman founded Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in 2020 and is very passionate about finding nonsurgical treatment options for those, young and old, who are looking to still enjoy an active life.
Areas treated: Elbow, Foot & Ankle, Hand & Wrist, Hip, Knee, Shoulder
Dr Crider is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Medical School and is Board Certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (also called PM&R or Physiatry). He has extensive training in the field of Regenerative Medicine and image-guided joint injections through groups such as the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation, American Academy of Orthopedic Medicine, and the Spine Intervention Society. He has done additional training at the world-famous Centeno-Schultz Clinic in Colorado and is certified by both the IOF and Regenexx to perform advanced-level injections throughout the body, including the spine.
Modern Regenerative injections allow us to repair areas of orthopedic degeneration which were previously covered up with steroids or major surgeries. But a precise injection still needs a precise diagnosis, which can only be found by listening to the patient’s story, performing a comprehensive physical examination, and taking a close look at the imaging. I am committed to providing each of my patients with that level of attention and an honest assessment.
Areas treated: Cervical Spine, Elbow, Foot & Ankle, Hand & Wrist, Hip, Knee, Lumbar Spine, Shoulder, Thoracic Spine
