Dr. Kenneth Lee

Dr. Lee was the victim of a car bombing while stationed in Baghdad, Iraq in 2004 as a commander of a Wisconsin Army National Guard medical battalion. He suffered multiple injuries, including brain trauma, resulting in 5 major surgeries and a long road to recovery. Now Associate Professor of Physical Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin as well as Chief of the Spinal Cord Injury Division at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, Dr. Lee has worked hard at overcoming his own injuries to help others lead active lifestyles through adaptive sports, including wheelchair lacrosse and basketball.

In addition to his physical injuries, Dr. Lee also suffered from posttraumatic stress disorder. He now uses his first-hand experience to enhance his practice with veterans and tailor their treatment. A key component of his recovery process has been getting involved in adaptive sports and helping other veterans in their recovery process.

Among his involvement is the Milwaukee Eagles Wheelchair Lacrosse Team that Lee, along with two other veterans created, owns and manages. This team was the catalyst for the Midwest Regional Wheelchair Lacrosse Division. Lee is also the Medical Director for the National Veterans Wheelchair Games and the President of the Board of Wisconsin Adaptive Sports Association.
