Georgia born, Georgia raised, and Georgia educated, Dr. Ronald Lewis is a well-established member of the Northeast Georgia community. As a general surgeon, he possesses a wide spectrum of skills, but has chosen to focus his practice on repair of simple and complex hernias. He is often able to provide a minimally invasive treatment for a common problem, thus allowing his patients to return to normal activities with a shorter recovery.

Nationally, Dr. Lewis serves as a mentor for Intuitive/da Vinci Robotic Surgical. In this capacity, he mentors and trains new robotic surgeons. He is also a member of the American Hernia Society and participates in the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative, a diplomate in the American Board of Surgery, and a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Lewis attended the University of Georgia and completed his bachelors degree in respiratory therapy at the Medical College of Georgia. Upon completion of his undergraduate degree, he worked as a respiratory therapist, which ultimately led him to a career as a physician. He earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia and completed his general surgery residency at the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. 

While providing a range of general surgery services, his primary practice focus includes:

  • Minimally Invasive Hernia Surgery, Robotic and Laparoscopic

  • Laparoscopic Gallbladder Surgery

  • Benign and Malignant Breast Disease

  • Laparoscopic Colon Surgery for Benign and Malignant Disease

When not in the operating room, Dr. Lewis is spending time with his family, is a proud Assistant ScoutMaster for Troup 16 and enjoys being a member of his local church.


I want to treat each individual patient as if they were a family member.

I had a laparoscopic hernia repair with Dr Lewis and I can not say enough about the entire process. While I hope to not need surgery again, I will definitely return if the need comes.
