Dr. Leopold specializes in surgical treatments for hip and knee arthritis. He has a particular interest in less-invasive methods of hip and knee replacement surgery. These newer techniques can decrease postoperative pain, decrease the risk of surgery and shorten the postoperative recovery period. He is a professor in the Department of Orthopedics and Sports Medicine.
