The Florida Hospital Orthopaedic Institute Orlando (FHOIO), a leader in the treatment of complex orthopedic conditions, has been making key contributions to the orthopedic field. Under the leadership of J. Dean Cole, MD, the Center’s medical director and an elite specialist in the field of orthopedic traumatology, the FHOIO has become home to a number of groundbreaking inventions and applications, including the Intramedullary Skeletal Kinetic Device, an internal limb-lengthening apparatus. J. Dean Cole, MD has made the FHOIO a unique medical destination, with a team of experienced, expert surgeons and medical professionals dedicated to providing high-quality, minimally invasive surgical care for all our patients. Every year, the FHOIO handled more than 4,000 musculoskeletal injuries, deformities and conditions.

Florida Hospital Orlando’s history of excellence in diagnosing and treating orthopedic conditions and injuries dates all the way back to 1936. In fact, we’ve performed more surgeries than any other hospital in the state, including the state’s first total knee replacement and arthroscopic surgery.

The volume and complexity of the FHOIO’s cases over the years have provided us with expertise that few others can match. No matter your orthopedic conditions—whether it’s a hip replacement or a compound fracture—you can rest assured that you are in excellent hands at the Florida Hospital Orthopaedic Institute Orlando.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program

Florida Hospital Orlando 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.
