About Dr. Lento

Paul H. Lento, MD, is a triple board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) physician and specialist on sports medicine and musculoskeletal ultrasound at 360 Orthopedics in Sarasota, Venice, and Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Over the past several years, Dr. Lento has been named one of the Top Doctors in Sarasota for his ongoing dedication and service.

Dr. Lento attended West Chester University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in bio-chemistry. He then earned his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia before completing an internship via a Navy Scholarship Program at the Naval Hospital of Pensacola in Florida. He then completed a physical medicine and rehabilitation residency at Temple University Hospital, followed by a sports medicine fellowship at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago/Northwestern University.

Following his medical training, Dr. Lento was a medical officer for the U.S. Navy. Dr. Lento specializes in the non-surgical treatment of various musculoskeletal problems by identifying the cause of musculoskeletal pain or loss of function and determines whether the problem is mechanical, inflammatory, or degenerative. Together with a variety of non-surgical strategies, Dr. Lento addresses these problems, which enable patients to get back to enjoying life.

His specialty also incorporates the use of Musculoskeletal Ultrasound (MSK US). MSK US is a non-invasive imaging test used to diagnose tendon, muscle, and ligament tears without the use of ionizing radiation or concern for claustrophobia that is associated with MRI. There are also no issues with metal such as pacemakers or other implantable devices. Dr. Lento uses this imaging technique when necessary to accurately and precisely guide injections directly into problematic areas.

Dr. Lento was formerly an advisor for the North American Spine Society providing the appropriate use of exercise to treat various spinal conditions.  His practice focus is on identifying biomechanical factors, which may be the root cause of a patient’s musculoskeletal problem.

In 2012, Dr. Lento served as a physician in the Olympic Clinic at the Salt Lake Winter Olympics. He has also covered multiple endurance racing events such as the Chicago, Houston, and Washington, DC marathons. He was Race Medical Director for the International Triathlon Union held at Nathan Benderson Park and currently serves the team physician for Lakewood Ranch, Parrish, and Booker High School athletes.
