Dr. Dunleavy prefers a conservative approach to treating his patients. “When possible, I encourage my patients to explore nonsurgical treatment methods prior to considering surgery, and in most cases nonoperative measures are successful. However, if pain persists, I provide the latest minimally-invasive techniques available, and I strive to create a compassionate setting for your recovery.”In his spare time, Dr. Dunleavy is an avid sports fan, and enjoys baseball, golf and tennis.
