Knee Replacement Surgery
The art and science of joint replacement surgery are constantly evolving. At The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, we offer patients the latest, most-promising innovations in joint replacement.
A diagnosis is made for every patient based on a personal history, a thorough physical examination and state-of-the-art imaging. For some patients, alternatives to joint replacement are offered. In these cases, advanced techniques like specialized injections or arthroscopy are used to delay (sometimes permanently) the need for an artificial joint.
For patients who do require knee or hip replacement, Dr. Leone will choose the implant that is best suited to each person’s medical and lifestyle needs.
All patients receive as minimally invasive surgery (MIS) as possible, emphasizing precise component positioning, meticulous soft tissue handling and closure. This results in less soft tissue trauma and as rapid a recovery as possible.
In the last five years, Dr. Leone has performed more than 3,000 joint replacements. According to Premier, the largest benchmarking comparative data service in the country, his complication rate is three times less and his readmission rate is three times less than peer orthopedic surgeons throughout the country. Read more about Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a health care research firm, which named Dr. Leone a Florida “Top Orthopedic Surgeon” for four consecutive years, 2010 through 2014.
