Belford, NJ (PRWEB) November 17, 2010
People pay more for better houses, cars, TVs, clothes and other material items – isn’t it worth paying more to receive personalized healthcare from an expert who delivers consistently superior results? Dr. William Leone and Holy Cross Hospital believe so and have designed special VIP packages for patients receiving hip and knee replacements that include: quality time with Dr. Leone and his staff and amenities such as daily gourmet menus, private suites with plush bathrobes (like a five star hotel), all in a serene, award-winning setting. Follow-up and physical therapy at a partnering facility are part of the service, as well (he recommends aquatic therapy for his patients) .
The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care is a Concierge Medicine center in which patients with Medicare insurance pay a fee for their surgery while all Medicare-eligible services associated with hip and knee replacement, including hospitalization, prosthetic costs, anesthesia, first assistant, radiology, physical therapy, home health services and supplies continue to be covered by Medicare.
“Dr. Leone is a very skilled and caring surgeon who has lived up to his outstanding reputation and made my whole surgical experience far better than I could have ever anticipated,” stated Gerald Kramer who had a total knee revision. “I had no qualms about paying for his services, and the VIP treatment I received from the first time I stepped through the door was worth every penny!”
Dr. Leone combines cutting-edge technology and old-fashioned patient care to deliver consistently excellent clinical results. The Leone Center for Orthopedic Care a new, stand-alone office at Holy Cross HealthPlex, treats a variety of hip and knee conditions, ranging from arthritis-related joint destruction to revision surgeries.
“I know my patients personally because we’ve spent as much time together as needed before, during and after surgery,” said Dr. Leone “Our entire staff creates a warm and welcoming environment where our patients are treated with respect and dignity which is becoming rarer in today’s world. My patients tell me they have ‘peace of mind’ because they know they’re getting the best. My goal has always been to create a facility where I would want to send any of my family members or go myself for treatment,” he added.
Over the course of his career Dr. Leone has limited his practice to total joint replacements. He has gained expertise over 20 plus years and by performing 500 to 600 surgeries per year over the past ten years, while eighty percent of joint replacements in the U.S. are performed by orthopedists that only do 20-30 annually. Dr. Leone is also an innovator – he invented the Pelvic Alignment Level (PAL), an instrument and technique that allows surgeons to achieve a greater level of implant precision when performing total hip replacements.
The Leone Center specializes in the treatment of hip and knee joint destruction due to primary or secondary osteoarthritis and failed prior total hip and knee replacements. Surgical treatments include primary and revision total hip replacement, hip resurfacing, primary and revision total knee replacement and partial knee replacement. The Center also utilizes advanced robotics, computer navigation, 3D imaging facilities and other state-of-the art technology.
“At the Leone Center, my patients benefit from my experience and expertise while receiving compassion and a gentle touch resulting in less pain, faster recovery time and consistently excellent results,” he stated.
Holy Cross Hospital has received numerous awards for orthopedic and joint replacements surgery over the last five years and is currently ranked #1 in Florida for Joint Replacement Surgery (HealthGrades). 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.
