Dr. Leucht received his medical degree in 2002 at the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. He then started an orthopaedic residency at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Dr. Leucht started his clinician-scientist career in 2004, when he joined the laboratory of Dr. Jill Helms at Stanford University. He concentrated his research efforts on three major areas:

  1. The cellular and molecular mechanisms that govern skeletal development and adult fracture healing
  2. The effect of mechanical stimulation on bone regeneration
  3. Stem-cell based tissue engineering strategies to enhance bone regeneration

Dr. Leucht’s expertise and skills include in vivo fracture healing models in mouse, rat and rabbit, bone histomorphometry, genetically modified mouse models, in situ hybridization, microCT analysis, and routine cell and molecular biology techniques.

Dr. Leucht joined the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases in 2014 as a tenure-track Assistant Professor with appointments in Orthopaedic Surgery and Cell Biology.  His clinical practice is focused on fracture care, fracture nonunion, bone reconstruction, infection, and bone healing.
