Dr. Nathan Lesley is an orthopedic hand surgeon serving patients in Fort Worth, Texas. He is a Fort Worth, Magazine 2022 Top Doctor.
A native of DeLeon, Tex., Dr. Lesley is a graduate of the Texas Tech University School of Medicine, where he was named Outstanding Medical Student in Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Lesley specializes in hand surgery and completed the Brown University Orthopedics Hand, Upper Extremity and Microvascular Fellowship.
Dr. Lesley is no stranger to Tarrant County, having completed his residency at John Peter Smith (JPS). While in residency, Dr. Lesley taught general orthopedic surgery and anatomy at the University of North Texas Health Science Center and served as a team physician for several local high school football programs. Dr. Lesley’s positive experience at JPS, along with proximity to family, was a primary motivation to make Fort Worth home.
Dr. Lesley says he was drawn to hand surgery “because of the complex anatomy involved as well as having the opportunity to restore function that we all take for granted until it’s compromised.” Dr. Lesley has been published a number of times and is a member of numerous professional organizations, including the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons.
When he is not teaching or seeing patients, Dr, Lesley enjoys spending time with his wife, Amber (also a Texas Health Care doctor), and their daughters Anna and Emily. When he has time to get away, Dr. Lesley loves to return home to Comanche County to hike, hunt and fish.
