Dr. Michael B Millis has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

AMAZING doctor!

I became a patient of Dr. Millis when I was 13 years old after having about a year of excruciating pain in my left hip. After seeing a few doctors at a children's hospital in providence.. Nobody could tell me what was wrong. Dr. Millis immediately saw that I had congenital hip dysplasia, as well as a crack in my left hip (due to constant impact).At the time, I was a competitive figure skater.. So the news of having to get surgery and not be able to train for approximately 6 months was more than devastating. However, Dr. Millis did everything in his power to ensure that I would recover and be back on the ice before I knew it. He has an amazing way about him that completely puts his patients at ease. He cares about each and every one of them..which is what makes him such a great doctor. Needless to say, after 2 months on crutches and about 4 months of intense physical therapy.. I was back on the ice training. I am now 23 years old and teach figure skating for a living.. And Dr. Millis is a big part of why I am able to do so. I highly recommend Dr. Millis.. Especially to injured athletes.
