in Magnolia, TX |
The doctor was great! His staff, not the greatest. Had to wait several days for a MRI and his staff was dishonest blaming my insurance, turns out the office had a fill in, they should have just come clean. The MRI dept. hadn't even started the paperwork with my insurance company. Then it was going to take another 7 days; shame on them! I will go else where for the MRI. No thanks!
in Tomball, TX |
Dr. Dunleavy was courteous, compassionate, and very knowledgable. He took his time to explain my condition and assigned appropriate treatment. I can't say enough good things about him. I highly recommend Dr. Dunleavy!
in Houston, TX |
I took my mother to Dr. Dunleavy for a second opinion for a TKR. He was very friendly, took his time explaining things. Would not hesitate to go back to him or refer someone to him.

Dr. Dunleavy's Care Philosophy

To provide the least invasive treatment possible for the best, long term outcome and to continue offering patients the very latest techniques and technology available in orthopedic medicine.

Dr. Dunleavy says...

Dr. Dunleavy specializes in orthopedic sports medicine, which covers a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions - many of which are overuse conditions or trauma related to a sport or high level activity.  He specializes in advanced arthroscopic hip labrum repairs, femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), arthroscopic hip bursectomy, "all-inside" arthroscopy-assisted ACL reconstruction, multiligament knee reconstruction, meniscus and cartilage preservation and reconstruction techniques, microfracture, osteochondral autograft and allograft transfer in the knee, shoulder impingement, arthroscopic biceps tenodesis, arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic shoulder labrum repair, tendinopathy, fracture care, and general orthopaedic surgery. 

While at the University of Chicago, he trained under team physicians for the NFL Chicago Bears.  He also served as a team physician for the MLS Chicago Fire soccer team, University of Chicago sports teams, and local high school football teams. 

 

Dr. Dunleavy says...

He offers new, minimally-invasive arthroscopic techniques for knee, shoulder and hip pain – particularly for patients with pain in their hips.  

He uses musculoskeletal ultrasound for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and prefers using the ultrasound to guide most injections of the hip.  

"Historically, hip preservation surgery involved large incisions and long recovery times.  Now we are often able to perform arthroscopic hip surgery through small incisions to reduce pain, improve function and preserve the cartilage of the hip."
