Get to know Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Frantz R. Lerebours, who serves patients in Miami, Florida.

New York City, New York Mar 18, 2021 ( - Dr. Lerebours is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute. 

Specializing in orthopedic trauma surgery and fracture surgery, his approach to patient care is to look at the entire patient.

He considers factors like their social situation and vocation when helping a patient rehabilitate from an injury. 

With a background in sports medicine, Dr. Lerebours has expertise in treating both fractured bones and surrounding soft tissues. He joined Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute from Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was an attending physician.
