Michael C. Leland, M.D. Orthopedic Surgeon

Dr. Michael C. Leland

Congratulations to our dear friend and colleague, Michael C. Leland, MD who retired at the end of December 2015.  Since 1982, when Dr. Leland joined Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute (formerly Valparaiso Orthopedic Clinic) he has been a pioneer in caring for the developmental and degenerative problems of the hip.  His connection to the community and dedication to his practice spurred on the fledgling orthopedic practice and assisted it to become the largest orthopedic practice in Northwest Indiana.   
More recently in 2003 he began a five year research in the treatment of hip replacements from the anterior approach.  He performed the first anterior replacement in 2008 and finished his remarkable career with more than 1000 hip replacement using this technique.   
An avid outdoorsman, his favorite pastime is watching the Lake Michigan waves from aboard his sailboat.  His well-earned retirement will bring him more time to sing and ski and sail.  
So, set sail, dear friend. Show the world the cut of your jib and let the next chapter of your life get underway.
