The certification award recognizes Florida Hospital Waterman Joint Replacement Center’s commitment to the highest level of safety and quality care for its patients.

Our program is specifically designed to help patients comfortably and conveniently navigate each process, all with the guidance of our orthopedics coordinator, who is there to assist you every step of the way. From helping you coordinate your pre-operative care and surgery to postoperative and rehabilitation needs. Learn more about Florida Hospital Waterman's Orthopedic services and treatments. 

Our orthopedics center offers the most advanced procedures, and the latest, most cutting-edge techniques—including Mako™ partial knee replacement. We specialize in Bio Pro® conservative implants, a revolutionary approach to total knee replacement that preserves more of the natural knee; in fact, it’s the only FDA-approved technique that retains all of the knee’s original ligaments, giving patients a better chance at longer-lasting pain relief. 

Our goal is to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment process, reduce the treatment’s impact on healthy surrounding tissues and muscles, and reduce your recovery time. In fact, many of our patients are able to return home the same day as their surgery.

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program

Florida Hospital Waterman 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 of 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.
