Dr. Leighton specializes in arthroscopic surgery of the knee and shoulder as well as knee, hip, and shoulder replacement. He has been in practice in Palm Beach County since 1994. He also serves as the team physician for local high schools and is the Medical Director of Palm Beach Atlantic University. Dr. Leighton is very sports oriented both in his own life and for his patient’s. He enjoys golf, tennis, softball and hiking. 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.
