Listen to our episode on Acetabulum Fractures as Dr. Leslie gives us an excellent overview.
Michael P. Leslie DO, FAOA, is an orthopaedic surgeon who specializes in the care and treatment of patients with complex orthopaedic injuries and complex hip replacement needs. He has particular expertise in hip reconstruction, replacement and revision surgeries. He cares for patients in collaboration with the multidisciplinary trauma team at Yale New Haven Hospital.
Dr. Leslie chose his field because he wanted to help people of all backgrounds and situations manage traumatic events, which can be among the most difficult experiences they will face. “I am able to provide a calm presence and bring the skill of many subspecialties to the patient,” he says.
Dr. Leslie said he became a doctor of osteopathy—a specialist who treats patients using a holistic approach to patient care—because it allows him to take into account every aspect of his patient’s condition. He believes this is especially important in trauma, where patients often have medical problems in that need to be addressed in addition to their injury. Goal of episode: To develop a baseline knowledge on acetabulum fractures.
