Meet the Doctors

King & Parsons (at the Knee Hip and Shoulder Center) was founded on April 1st, 2003 by Thomas V. King, M.D. and Kathleen Leavitt, PAC to establish a regional center of expertise in solving orthopedic conditions involving the knee, hip, and shoulder. An innovator in joint replacement care, Dr. King has pioneered efforts to enhance recovery after joint replacement creating the foundation of A.V.A.T.A.R®. In 2017, Dr. Parsons joined Dr. King with the mutual goal of continuing to build on the success of the center in providing the best joint replacement care in the Northeast.

Get Back To What You Love

Same Day Surgery.

Why stay in the hospital when you can now recover for surgery in the comfort of your own home

For knees, hips and shoulders,  A.V.A.T.A.R® works to return people to life’s fun and challenges sooner.

Even today, more than 75% of people nationally spend 1 to 3 days confined to a hospital bed after total joint surgery. That is all changing, and outpatient same-day surgery is the future.

Modern advances in anesthesia, pain management and surgical techniques make this a safe and satisfying option for a majority of patients who undergo knee, hip and shoulder replacement. Dr. Parsons and Dr. King lead New England in same-day surgery joint replacement, having performed over 3  thousand cases in the past 8 years.

Though some people require hospital admission, over 80% of our patients are able to go home within hours of surgery. They recover with an intensive, personalized, coordinated rehabilitation program in the safety and comfort of their own home.
