Shoulder, Elbow, or Arm

You want to return to pain-free movement and get back to your normal routine. Here's how we can help get you there:

Non-surgical care

Slings or bracing, physical therapy, and joint injections with steroids or other substances can help with many overuse injuries. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) are also important. Dislocated shoulders and elbows, as well as some broken bones, can be put back in place without surgery.

Arthroscopy

Surgeons use this minimally invasive procedure to evaluate and repair problems such as torn ligaments, bone spurs, recurrent dislocation, and other injuries. It uses tiny incisions to insert miniature instruments and a small camera to guide the procedure.

Bone and tissue grafting

Healthy bone taken from another area in the body, or from a donor, can be transplanted to help heal a damaged bone. This may be done for some severe fractures or those that fail to heal with typical care. Tissues such as ligaments and tendons can also be repaired with grafts.

Surgery

Traditional open surgery may be used to repair a broken bone or damaged tissues such as tendons or ligaments, or replacement surgery may be considered.

Physical therapy

Our physical therapists work with you to design a personalized program to relieve your pain and restore your range of motion. Physical therapy is often combined with other treatments and may help you avoid surgery. If not, our physical therapists are with you every step of the way as you recover.

Wrist or Hand

You're in good hands. Your team at Florida Hospital will explain every step of your diagnosis and care. Different wrist and hand conditions need different kinds of treatment. Your care plan may include:

Non-surgical care

Bracing, physical therapy, and joint injections with steroids can often help with wrist injuries and other conditions. Finger fractures can often be reset without surgery and can heal with a splint.

Physical therapy

Our physical therapists work with you to design a personalized program to relieve your pain and restore movement to your wrist and hand. Physical therapy is often combined with other treatments and may help you avoid surgery. If not, our physical therapists are with you every step of the way as you recover.

Arthroscopy

Surgeons use this minimally invasive procedure to evaluate and repair wrist problems. They make tiny incisions to insert small instruments and a miniature camera to guide the procedure. It may be used to treat some wrist fractures, ganglion cysts, ligament tears, and other problems. In some cases, carpal tunnel syndrome can be repaired this way.

Bone and tissue grafting

Healthy bone taken from another area in the body, or from a donor, can be transplanted to help heal a damaged bone in the wrist or hand. This may be done for some severe fractures or those that fail to heal with typical care. Tissues such as ligaments and tendons can also be repaired with grafts.

Surgery

Surgery may be used to repair a broken hand or wrist bone, or damaged tissues such as tendons or ligaments. Implants such as pins and plates are sometimes used to hold bones in place as they heal. For some people with severe wrist arthritis, the best treatment is to fuse the wrist bones to relieve the pain. Or wrist replacement may be considered.

Hip, Leg, or Knee

Attentive, personal care is the best way to get back to your active life. Depending on your injury or condition, your treatment plan may include:

Non-surgical care

A cane or walker, physical therapy, or joint injections with steroids may be used. Some leg fractures can be reset without surgery, and some stable hip fractures can heal with bed rest.

Physical therapy

Our physical therapists work with you to design a personalized program to relieve your pain and restore movement to your hip or leg. Physical therapy is often used in combination with other treatments and may help you avoid surgery. If not, you'll have physical therapists with you every step of the way as you recover.

Arthroscopy

Surgeons use this minimally invasive procedure to evaluate and repair problems. They make tiny incisions to insert miniature instruments and a small camera to guide the procedure. It can be used to treat problems such as torn cartilage or ligaments, bone spurs, torn meniscus, or a torn anterior or posterior cruciate ligament. It is also used to treat chronic kneecap dislocations.

Core decompression

This surgery is used to treat a painful condition called osteonecrosis, in which bone cells in the hip die. The surgeon drills one or more holes into the head of the femur to relieve pressure. This also creates channels where new blood vessels can grow and nourish the bone.

Bone and tissue grafting

Healthy bone taken from another area in the body, or from a donor, can be transplanted to help heal a damaged bone in the hip, leg, or knee. This may be done for some severe fractures or those that fail to heal with typical care. Tissues such as ligaments and tendons can also be repaired with grafts.

Surgery

Traditional open surgery may be best for some fractures and other conditions. Implants such as pins and plates are sometimes used to hold bones in place as they heal. Hip or knee replacement may also be considered.

Hip resurfacing

This procedure is similar to total hip replacement, except that the head of the femur is not removed. Instead, it is trimmed and covered with a smooth metal cap. The hip socket is treated the same as with a total hip replacement.

Ankle or Foot

It's important to get know you and your specific injury or condition before suggesting a treatment plan. But here are some treatments that might be options for you, depending on your situation:

Non-surgical care

A cane or walker, ankle bracing, physical therapy, and joint injections with steroids are often used. In some cases, such as clubfoot in children, a cast can help correct the problem. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) can help relieve pain and reduce swelling.

Physical therapy

Our physical therapists work with you to design a personalized program to relieve your pain and restore movement to your ankle and foot. Physical therapy is often combined with other treatments and may help you avoid surgery. If not, our physical therapists are with you every step of the way as you recover.

Ankle arthroscopy

Surgeons use this minimally invasive procedure to evaluate and repair problems in your ankle. They make tiny incisions to insert miniature instruments and a small camera to guide the procedure. This technique can be used to treat damaged cartilage or ligaments, to remove bone spurs, and to make other repairs.

Bone and tissue grafting

Healthy bone taken from another area in the body, or from a donor, can be transplanted to help heal a damaged bone in the foot or ankle. This may be done for some severe fractures or those that fail to heal with typical care. Tissues such as ligaments and tendons can also be repaired with grafts.

Surgery

This may be used to repair a broken ankle or foot bone, or damaged tissues such as tendons or ligaments. Implants such as pins and plates are sometimes used to hold bones in place as they heal. Surgery may also be used to treat conditions such as bunions, some types of club foot, ruptured Achilles tendon, and others. Ankle replacement may also be considered.

Neck or Back

Neck and back problems are painful — and sometimes scary. Let us help you put your mind at ease while returning you to your best possible function with the least possible pain. Every person and situation is different, but some of your treatment options might include:

Non-surgical care

Many spine injuries can be treated with a brace or cast to support the area as it heals. Bracing can also help with some types of curvature of the spine, some compression fractures of the vertebrae, and other spine conditions. Spinal injections with a steroid medication can help treat pain from arthritis or injury. Physical therapy and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) are also important options.

Physical therapy

Our physical therapists work with you to design a personalized program to relieve your pain and restore flexibility to your back and neck. Physical therapy is often combined with other treatments and may help you avoid surgery. If not, our physical therapists are with you every step of the way as you recover.

Spine arthroscopy

Surgeons use this minimally invasive technique to evaluate and repair problems in your spine. They make tiny incisions to insert small instruments and a microscope or miniature camera to guide the procedure. It’s used to treat spine conditions such as disk compressions, herniated disks, spinal stenosis, fractures, and others.

Bone grafting

Healthy bone taken from another area in the body, or from a donor, can be transplanted to the spine for a procedure called spinal fusion. This technique fuses two or more vertebrae together to relieve pain. It’s done after other treatments haven’t been successful.

Surgery

While most spine surgeries are now done with minimally invasive techniques, traditional open surgery is sometimes necessary. It involves one longer incision to access the surgical site. This allows a better view for the surgeon to place screws, cages, or other devices that stabilize the spinal bones as they heal.
