Welcome to The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care blog!
This is an exciting time for The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, Holy Cross Hospital, and the practice of medicine.
Twenty years ago, when I started my career as an orthopedic surgeon, I would have never imagined that doctors like me would have the opportunity to communicate with patients and the community via the “Internet” or a “blog.” I believe this is going to be a valuable tool for us to share and discuss the most effective surgical treatments for primary and revision total hip replacement, hip resurfacing, primary and revision total knee replacement and partial knee replacement.
In the South Florida community and beyond, I am best known for restoring mobility and improving our patients’ quality of life through hip and knee replacement and reconstruction. When I began practicing medicine twenty years ago, respecting patients’ time, dignity, and peace of mind was the standard. I am proud to say that my staff and I continue to uphold these values when caring for each and every one of our patients.
We opened The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care several months ago with an overriding goal to offer specialized, excellent surgical interventions for hip and knee issues with a high level of personal attention. Together, my staff and I carry out this model to maximize communication with our patients and help reduce the anxiety, fear and pain too often associated with medical conditions and treatment.
I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you and addressing your questions and concerns! Feel free to leave a question in the comment section below.
