leon-mead-mdLeon Mead has been southwest Florida’s premier orthopedic surgeon for the last 2 decades. He is the only Orthopedic MD in the area with advanced fellowship training in 2 areas:

  • Total Joint Arthroplasty
  • Arthroscopic Sports Medicine

This gives him a unique perspective and all the tools to successfully treat all sports and joint problems from the simple to the complex.

Instead of a “one approach fits all” attitude, each patient is afforded a customized approach to their unique set of problems. This ensures that all opportunities for wellness are explained in understandable terms and administered with the skill of a master craftsman. It is this absolute commitment to quality that sets Dr. Mead apart. For well over the last decade he has been honored to be one of “America’s Top Orthopedic Surgeons”.

Currently ranked in the top 1% of all orthopedic surgeons nationally for patient satisfaction by Press-Ganey, and has been so for the last 2 years. His patients enjoy one of the lowest revision rates and his infection rate is less than 0.1%. It’s no wonder that operating room personnel consistently choose Dr. Mead for their orthopedic needs.
