Stephen F. Lex, M.D.

Dr. Lex’s CV

IMG_4407editDr. Stephen F. Lex, M.D. is a Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is Board-Certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame and his medical degree from Louisiana State University in Shreveport. Dr. Lex did his residency in general surgery at Western Reserve Care System in Youngstown, Ohio, and his plastic and reconstructive surgery residency at the Medical College of Ohio in Toledo. In addition, Dr. Lex has a post-graduate fellowship in pediatric plastic surgery, microsurgery and cranio-maxillofacial surgery from the Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix. Dr. Lex sees patients in Flagstaff, Sedona, Cottonwood, Lakeside, Kingman and Payson.

Dr. Lex grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana, and met Dr. Quigley when his father told him to look up Quigley, who was also doing his general surgery training at Western Reserve in Youngstown, and who, coincidentally, had been his father’s best friend’s paper boy in Springfield, Illinois. The two hit if off instantly so when Dr. Lex moved to Flagstaff in the late 1980s to work with a plastic surgeon who moved away after a year, his first call was to Dr. Quigley. They’ve been partners at Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona (PSNA) ever since.

Dr. Lex was first drawn to plastic surgery because of the great variety of surgeries it involves, and that is still one of the things that he loves most about his job. His practice at PSNA never becomes routine so he’s never bored. Although he doesn’t really have one favorite procedure, Dr. Lex finds cleft lip and palate work especially rewarding as he’s able to really form a bond with these kids, whom he’ll treat many times over a twenty- year period.

When he isn’t at work as a plastic surgeon, Dr.Lex can be found backpacking in the wilderness somewhere or on a river, white water kayaking, often with his sons and his daughter, all of whom have taken up the sport, much to their father’s delight.
