Dr. Mike Leahy

Degree: MD
Department: Orthopedics
Specialty: Orthopedic & Spine Surgery
Expertise: Spine

Dr. Leahy believes in taking a conservative approach to treating the spine. “In my practice, surgical treatment of spinal disorders is always a last resort. It is only after exhaustive conservative efforts have been made that surgery is appropriate. I feel that this is the safest approach to treating the spine and allows for the best surgical outcomes.”


Dr. Leahy is a strong proponent of minimally invasive surgical techniques, including nonfusion procedures such as artificial disc replacement and adult stem cell therapy. He is proficient in all of the most current surgical techniques in the treatment of spinal disorders. He incorporates these treatment alternatives into his practice whenever possible.
