Orthopedic Surgery

Bones and Joints are our Specialty

At Florida Hospital Dade City, we help you restore your active lifestyle and get back to doing the things you enjoy most. Whether you are suffering from osteoarthritis, joint pain, hip fracture, a broken bone, a sport injury or other orthopedic issues, we can help you get the healing you need.

Many orthopedic conditions may be treated through non-surgical means. Our team of specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that may include physical therapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, corticosteroids and rest. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications reduce swelling, pain and joint stiffness, while corticosteroids are used to reduce inflammation. When these treatment options are not enough, surgery may be required. We offer the newest minimally invasive orthopedic procedures, resulting in a shorter recovery time, less pain and less scarring.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program

Florida Hospital Dade City 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.
