Dr. Lyon's Profile

Dr. Roger M. Lyon came to the Orthopaedic Surgery Department in 1993 following a fellowship in pediatric orthopaedics at Children's Hospital in Boston. In 1981, he received his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Chicago. In 1985, he earned his doctor of medicine degree at the University of Chicago and completed a surgery internship there in 1986.

His residency was completed at the University of California at San Diego. During that time, Dr. Lyon was awarded the Excellence in Research Award, in the category of clinical science, by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, as part of his work on the biomechanics of knee ligaments. His primary focus is on the care of sports related injuries in children and young adults. He is experienced in pediatric arthroscopic surgeries of the knee, hip, shoulder, elbow and ankle.

Having been named as one of the Best Doctors in America, Dr. Lyon is chief of the Pediatric Orthopaedic Sports Medicine program at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and serves as the Clinical Director of the Motion Analysis Laboratory.

Dr. Lyon has been a pioneer in the use of EPAT, a nonoperative treatment technique in children with soft tissue injuries. This treatment enhances the normal healing response to reduce pain and allow quicker return to activities.

He is the co-author and/or presenter of a significant number of book chapters and research articles. His main clinical endeavors include pediatric sports medicine, hip dysplasia and pediatric foot deformities. Dr. Lyon became recently involved in the OCD Study Group of North America. He is involved with many research studies in pediatric sports injuries to further our understanding and improve treatment outcomes.
