Phoenix Magazine Lists Twelve OrthoArizona Physicians as
2022 ‘Top Doctors’ in the Valley

Every year, Phoenix Magazine comes out with their ‘Top Doctors’ issue naming the top doctors in the Phoenix Valley, as decided by a peer vote.

What this means is other medical doctors all over the Valley vote on these doctors, showing respect and admiration.

Were proud to announce that this year, twelve OrthoArizona physicians are included in the list!

In addition to being voted a Top Doc some of our doctors were chosen by the editors to be covered in articles that go into more detail. Our OrthArizona physicians Dr. Todd Haddon, Dr. Mark Leber, and Dr. Nina Lara are featured physicians in this year’s Top Doc issue!

Read more about them and their stories below:

Dr. Todd Haddon is one of our podiatric surgeons that treats foot and ankle injuries and conditions. With over twenty-one years of experience, he specializes in sports medicine, traumatic injuries, and complex adult and podiatric foot deformities.

As an expert in advanced medical technologies and innovations, Dr. Haddon performs a wide range of procedures. He strives to provide patients with the most up-to-date treatment options so they can return to their work, sport, and daily life as quickly as possible.

Next, Dr. Mark Leber was named a 2022 Top Doctor in addition to being interviewed by Phoenix Magazine, where he spoke about life as a surgeon and co-owning the Phoenix Rising Football Club!

Dr. Leber is a board-certified Orthopedic Hand, Wrist and Elbow Surgeon with OrthoArizona who has been coaching patients through their treatment, therapy, and recovery processes for nearly twenty years. His passion for educating patients and helping them return to function led him toward the field of orthopedics, where he ultimately gravitated toward the meticulous specialty of hand, wrist, and elbow surgery.

Finally, Dr. Nina Lara, one of our Orthopedic Spine Surgeons, (one of the few female spine surgeons nationwide) was featured in Phoenix Magazine’s Top Doctors issue.

Dr. Lara believes that each patient’s pain is uniquely different. While there are many issues that back and neck pain have in common, everyone has their own journey. She is passionate about getting to know each of her patients individually and developing a treatment plan together to get them back to doing the activities they love.
