Biography

As a youth Micah’s sports and team experiences were formative. The lessons and relationships forged on the field of play influenced him to stay connected to sports throughout his life. In addition to participating as a player, Micah has coached several teams even touring Europe with The Israeli National Women’s Rugby Team. He also worked as a strength coach, training athletes to improve their sports performance. As a medical professional he started working with teams as an Athletic Trainer. This quickly expanded to a role as a Physical Therapist in a sport specific clinic. When Dr. Lissy applied for medical school it was with the intention to become an Orthopedic Sports Surgeon so that he could continue to work with the athletic population. Choosing a fellowship with a lot of sports coverage he was exposed to professional athletes and their care. He draws on all of these experiences when providing patient care and lecturing.

Dr. Lissy took the job to come work at UHS expressly to grow sports medicine into the premier program of its kind. He draws on all of his past experiences involved in sports as an athlete, coach, performance specialist, athletic trainer, physical therapist and sports surgeon to build the program, treat patients and educate the community.
