Orthopedics

Orthopedic specialists at Florida Hospital Altamonte are experienced in using the most proven treatments, technologies and techniques for the care of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Depending on the patient’s individual condition, treatments may include orthopedic surgery and/or non-surgical options.

Florida Hospital Altamonte is equipped to provide a full range of orthopedic treatments including sports medicine care and total joint replacement.  Some of the conditions we specialize in treating include:

  • Musculoskeletal trauma
  • Degenerative diseases
  • Sports injuries including those to the knees, shoulders and hips
  • Tumors
  • Infections
  • Congenital conditions
  • Spinal injuries at the Spine Health Institute

Our state-of-the-art inpatient facility is specifically designed to treat patients with spine and orthopedic conditions. Dedicated resources make it possible for orthopedic surgeons to better treat patients using minimally-invasive alternatives like the Biomet Signature Knee. Our less- and minimally-invasive options reduce pain, recovery time and trauma to the body.

As part of recovery and orthopedic treatment, patients access the facility’s new rehabilitation gym to learn the basics of daily life after treatment using a mock kitchen, bathroom and car. Patients are also guided through treatment by our Nurse Navigator, a medical professional who teaches pre-surgical patient education classes and provides care to patients throughout their stay at Florida Hospital Altamonte.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program

Florida Hospital Altamonte is participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program. The program is a new payment model being tested for episodes of care related to total knee and total hip replacements under Medicare, with the goal of supporting better and more efficient care coordination for patients undergoing the most common inpatient surgeries.

The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model continues to pay providers under existing payment systems, but holds hospitals responsible for the quality and costs from the initial procedure through 90 days after the patient is discharged. Through the CJR program, CMS expects improved coordination of care among hospitals, physicians and post-acute care providers – from surgery to recovery –to benefit patients and result in better outcomes and fewer complications.
