Steve Lex began his plastic surgery practice in Flagstaff in 1989. Having a keen interest in outdoor wilderness activities and a love for western landscapes, he was drawn to Flagstaff. Here he could establish the general plastics practice he sought, in the midst of the beauty of Northern Arizona and the Colorado Plateau country. Seeking a partner to join him in practice, he immediately thought of Dr. Jack Quigley, with whom he had become close friends while the two of them were plastic surgeon residents together in Youngstown, OH. Dr. Quigley joined Dr. Lex in Flagstaff in 1991 and together they formed Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona.
Married for over thirty years, Dr. Lex has four grown children and two grandchildren. In his spare time, he is very active in a number of outdoor pursuits, including white water kayaking, backpacking, mountain biking, and hunting.
Dr. Lex finds great fulfillment in his work and feels that it is a privilege to live and work in such a wonderful community and setting.
