FORT LAUDERDALE – Renowned orthopedic surgeon Dr. William Leone will discuss combining the latest surgical techniques and technologies with good, old-fashioned patient care to achieve the best and most-consistent results and experience for hip and knee surgery, during the Ortho Hour on Wednesday, October 28 at 4 p.m. at the Sister Innocent Conference Center at Holy Cross Hospital, 4725 N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. The Ortho Hour is free and open to the public.
Dr. Leone will explain how he combines Great Patient Care with State of the Art Technologies including:
- MAKO Rio, a robot that helps to achieve unmatched balance, limb alignment and component positioning for partial knee replacements;
- the VERASENSE Knee System, incorporates a microcomputer chip with imbedded sensors used during knee replacement surgery to transmit precise information for measuring both the amount and location of pressure in the knee, in order to achieve optimal component alignment and tension in specific ligaments; and
- the pelvic alignment level (PAL), which Dr. Leone invented and uses when performing total hip replacements to assure optimal component position and mechanics including desired leg length.
With more than 25 years of experience, Dr. Leone has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s top orthopedic surgeons for solving complex hip and knee issues. As head of The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, he is a key part of the leadership team that has garnered Holy Cross Hospital numerous awards and honors, including one of US News & World Report’s Best Hospitals (nationally and regionally) for Orthopedics.
