Dr. Jonathan Levy
Holy Cross Health has been recognized as one of the top five hospitals in the country for shoulder arthroplasty according to Orthopedic News Network, a healthcare data information website.
Shoulder arthroplasty, commonly referred to as total shoulder replacement surgery, is the replacement of certain portions of the shoulder joint with prosthetic implants. It is known to be successful in treating severe pain and stiffness caused by end-stage arthritis or repairing physical joint damage. The shoulder is the most commonly replaced joint after hips and knees.
As chief of orthopedic surgery and medical director of the Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Jonathan Levy is internationally known for his expertise in treating shoulder injuries by utilizing the latest technologies in shoulder surgery, offering patients access to cutting-edge techniques and solutions and opportunities to participate in four recent FDA trials.
“Our cutting-edge research and evidenced-based orthopedics help us consistently improve patient outcomes,” said Dr. Levy, who has served as program director of the Holy Cross Shoulder & Elbow Fellowship for the past eight years. “Improved outcomes and avoidance of complications are directly related to how often you do the procedure.”
Dr. Levy has performed close to 350 shoulder replacements a year and is the highest-volume shoulder replacement surgeon in the country. Dr. Levy’s commitment to innovation and management of shoulder arthritis led the Arthritis Foundation to name him Orthopaedic Surgeon of the Year.
“This top 5 ranking is a testament to Dr. Levy and the entire Holy Cross orthopedic team,” said Holy Cross Health CEO and President Mark Doyle. “This outstanding achievement reflects our continued commitment to providing the highest quality of care for our patients.”
