I am now 75 years old. I had suffered from a great deal of pain in my right shoulder for many years due to numerous injuries. I had a broken tendon, a worn out rotator cuff, and arthritis in my shoulder. Especially during this past year, the only relief I could get was with strong pain medications. My condition required a reverse total shoulder replacement. Dr Leathers performed the surgery six weeks ago (at the time of this writing). After the first week, I no longer needed any pain medication. I will begin physical therapy this week. The pain is gone and my range of motion is already improving, even before the physical therapy. I am so happy with the results of this surgery. I am also forever grateful for the technology available today, and especially for Dr Leathers expertise and skill as a surgeon for giving me a new pain free shoulder.

Dr. Leathers is the best! He fixed my right shoulder, it's like new. I suffered a terrible injury that tore three tendons. I couldn't even use my right arm to lift my pants! It was a horrific painful injury. Thanks to Dr Leathers I can pull up my pants, I can reach behind my back to strap on my bra. I am pain free. Thank you Dr Leathers! Dr. Leathers is definitely the best :)

It is 8 weeks post surgery which involved a distal bicep tendon reattachment to the left radius. Although the first 4 to 5 weeks were an expected slow rehab with range of motion and pronation/supination exercises, these last 3 to 4 weeks have shown remarkable progress with essentially full range of motion. This will still take another 4 months or longer for a full and complete return of arm strength. The foregoing is designed to inform patients what to expect and that this type of surgery is worth the time and effort when you have a professional like Dr Leathers to bring you along step by step with his skill, knowledge, care and understanding. You can trust in the process with Dr Leathers to perform the surgery and then monitor your rehabilitation to the end. Thank you, Dr Leathers.

Dr Leathers is a true professional. Listens to concerns and addresses each one before and after the surgery. Spends the needed time you need to get all your answers. If I eventually have to have my other hip replaced, I will definitely have Dr Leathers perform the surgery.

I was nervous about the whole procedure. Dr.Leathers made the whole experience well worth what little pain I did have. The end result has been great to be able to walk with no pain. Dr. Leathers had been very supportive and encouraging. When the time comes I would have him do surgery on my other knee.

Top notch communicator and surgeon. He implanted my right hip 1/22. His dad Michael W. Had replaced my left hip in 2014. I have severe osteoporosis and my right hip and is fragile. He has done everything possible to make my hoop stable. I’m healing and feeling so much better. I’m looking forward to a complete recovery and returning to my life and job. Many thanks to Dr Michael P. Leathers. Highly recommend him a a great Dr.

Dr. Leathers performed a complete shoulder replacement in February on me. This was my 8th shoulder surgery on this arm, (Dr. Leathers 1st on me). There were numerous issues including very limited movement, severe arthritis, pain in all movements, and he took it on. He was very honest on what to expect, and very thorough in the pluses and minuses. I am beyond words on how this has changed my life. No more pain, I am almost at full range in every direction (still in therapy). I am grateful to have had him perform my surgery. Excellent surgeon. Thank you Dr. Leathers.

I was worried at first going into Dr Leathers office not knowing how well this whole experience and situation was going to be, but he was super helpful/friendly and made the whole recovery process as easy as it could possibly be. Great guy with a noticeable drive and want for his patients to recovery and get back to full health.

Front desk staff was great. Dr Leathers answered any questions we asked and surgery to put a screw in a broken medial epicondyal went great.
