Orthopedic care

Orthopedists are doctors who take care of the entire musculoskeletal system. They diagnose and treat conditions such sprains, strains, broken bones, arthritis and osteoporosis. Some of the treatments they offer include recommending lifestyle changes, applying casts and performing surgeries, such as ligament repairs or total joint replacements.

Our orthopedic treatments

Our orthopedic team will work together and with you to create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Joint care

Joint conditions can be treated in various ways, depending on the severity of pain and damage to surrounding cartilage. At HCA Florida University Hospital, conservative methods are often preferred and may include physical therapy and steroid injections. When these forms of treatment do not help reduce joint pain or improve mobility, joint surgery may be required. Within our specialty areas, we provide access to a variety of joint care surgeries, including:

  • Arthroscopy of the shoulder, hip and knee
  • Hip replacement
  • Knee replacement
  • Other surgeries of the hands, wrists, feet and ankles
  • Shoulder replacement

Orthopedic surgery

Surgical procedures may be required for some conditions such as osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, non-healing bone fractures and trauma injuries.

From hand and wrist surgery to limb reconstruction surgery, HCA Florida University Hospital is dedicated to treating conditions with delicate and advanced techniques. We offer advanced surgical capabilities for minimally invasive orthopedic surgery, including robotic-assisted technology, which may provide patients with reduced pain, scarring and recovery time.

Osteoporosis prevention

As you age, you become more susceptible to joint and bone injuries. According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, roughly 54 million Americans have osteoporosis and low bone mass, which can increase your risk for osteoporosis. An estimated one in two women — and up to one in four men — 50 years old and older will break a bone due to osteoporosis.

Our physicians work with each patient to help alleviate joint pain, improve joint health and prevent osteoporosis. Early intervention is key to keeping your joints healthy and maintaining an active, long-term lifestyle.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Whether physical therapy is used as treatment or as a rehabilitation technique following orthopedic surgery, the team at HCA Florida University Hospital is dedicated to helping patients regain full range of motion and minimizing pain.

As part of our comprehensive orthopedic care, HCA Florida University Hospital offers physical therapy and rehabilitation services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. Tailored directly to the needs of each patient, our physical therapy and rehabilitation locations focus on pain management, exercise and education.
