Top Doctor ‘10, ‘11, ‘12, ‘13, ‘14, ‘15, ‘16, ‘17, ‘18, ‘19
Dr. William Leone, head of The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care at Holy Cross HealthPlex, has earned a reputation as one of the nation’s top orthopedic surgeons.
He has provided orthopedic care for thousands of patients with complex hip and knee issues by combining the latest techniques and technologies with a gentle and compassionate approach.
Computer navigation, combined with kinematic sensor technology, promotes more balanced and predictable total knee replacements while partial and total knee replacements are performed using robotic technology. Dr. Leone’s own invention, the Pelvic Alignment Level™, helps him achieve precise implant positioning and balance during total hip replacement.
Dr. Leone maintains that meticulous, precise and gentle soft tissue handling is equally important in achieving consistently superb clinical results for patients while respecting their dignity and time, and by making their entire experience as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Patients today also experience much faster recovery times, and his patients range from people in their ‘80s and ‘90s to those only in their ‘20s and ‘30s who do not want to live disabled or give up their independent and active lifestyles.
Effective strategies to minimize and prevent pain during joint replacement surgery also have been a game changer, allowing most patients to walk the day of their surgery, go home and return to their active life styles very quickly.
What sets The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care apart is that Dr. Leone’s practice provides good, old-fashioned patient care with an 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.
