Our History

Welcome to

King & Parsons Orthopedic Center

Our orthopedic practice was founded on April 1st, 2003 by Thomas V. King, M.D. and Kathleen Leavitt, PA-C in an effort to establish a regional center of expertise focused on the treatment of orthopedic conditions involving these joints. An innovator in joint replacement care, Dr. King has pioneered efforts to enhance recovery after joint replacement allowing earlier return to function and better outcomes. As a result of these continued efforts, our practice is leading New England in same day outpatient total joint replacement.

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. With a focus on patient-centered care, patient education, diligent care coordination and best surgical practices, our practice has developed a comprehensive program called A.V.A.T.A.R® that ushers patients through the surgery and recovery process with a personalized touch that customizes the care to each patient, and provides a faster recovery with less pain.
