William A. Leone, M.D., F.A.C.S Named 2017 Top Orthopedic Surgeon by Castle Connolly Medical, Ltd

Dr. William Leone, head of The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care at Holy Cross Hospital, has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s top orthopedic surgeons during his 25 years of practice.

He has provided orthopedic care for thousands of patients with complex knee and hip issues by combining the latest, proven techniques and technologies with a gentle and compassionate approach.

Technology, including computer navigation, kinematic sensors and robotics for partial and total knee replacements, and his own invention the Pelvic Alignment Level used during total hip replacements, helps him to achieve desired implant positioning, balancing and leg length reconstruction.

Dr. Leone emphasizes meticulous, precise and gentle soft-tissue handling during surgery, resulting in less tissue trauma, bleeding and postoperative pain. This is critically important in delivering the most-consistent and best results and overall experience possible.

His emphasis on preempting and preventing pain after joint replacement surgery has been a game changer. Patients walk the day of surgery and go home from the hospital much sooner, which allows them to return to their own active lives so much faster than ever before. Dr. Leone’s patients, who range in age from their 20s to their 90s, do not want to feel disabled or give up their independent or active lifestyles.

According to Premier, the largest benchmarking comparative data service in the country, Dr. Leone’s complication rate and readmission rate is three times less than peer orthopedic surgeons throughout the country. His practice has been driven by extremely satisfied patients referring their families and friends.

What sets The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care apart is that Dr. Leone’s practice provides good, old-fashioned patient care with emphasis on the doctor/patient relationship. His entire staff is involved in each patient’s care, from the first phone call through post-operative visits. The mission for Dr. Leone and his staff is to restore quality of life and make every step count for every patient, by combining the latest technology and surgical expertise with compassionate care.

Dr. Leone is a published author whose articles and papers have appeared in multiple peer review journals, and he continues to lecture internationally.

Dr. Leone received the prestigious “Top Doctors” award for orthopedics as reported by Gulfstream Media – for the eighth consecutive year, from 2010-2017. This is an incredible honor, as Dr. Leone was chosen out of more than 250,000 of the nation’s leading medical specialists, and only the best were selected to be part of Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors.”

The “Top Doctors” were nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process of thousands of American doctors each year. Their medical educations, training, hospital appointments, disciplinary histories – and much more – are screened by the Castle Connolly physician-led research team. Those doctors who are among the very best in their specialties and in their communities are selected for inclusion. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guide or online directory. http://www.castleconnolly.com/about/nomprocess.cfm
