    Physician Bio

    Dr. Leighton specializes in arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder as well as knee, hip, and shoulder replacement.

    Dr. Leighton is very sports oriented both in his own life and for his patient's. His approach to non-operative rehabilitation and therapy after surgery is aimed at getting patients back to the sports that they love; specifically, total knee and hip patients are expected to be hitting golf balls between two and three months after surgery.
