Conditions & Treatments
The variety of hip conditions treated at The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care ranges from arthritis-related joint destruction to the need for revision surgeries, or “re-dos,” and for failure of prior orthopedic surgeries. In the case of each patient, Dr. Leone provides a diagnosis based on a thorough history of the events leading up to the present problem, a physical examination and state-of-the-art imaging as indicated. If surgery is indicated, then the most appropriate procedure is recommended—the one with the best possible outcome in terms of mobility and quality of life. For an in-depth look at the conditions seen and treatments offered at The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, read on.
