Bloomingdale High School seniors receive Athlete of the Week Honors

Tampa, Fla. – October 16, 2018 – Florida Orthopaedic Institute (FOI) is proud to announce its Athlete of the Week award winners for the week ending October 19, 2018. This week’s winners were recognized by their respective Head Coaches for their leadership and commitment to their teams. Jonathan Owen is one of Bloomingdale’s team captains for cross country and Tessa Pignataro is a leading member of the school’s volleyball team. Both students have outstanding goals for their senior year. Owen wants to make it to the state finals and Pignataro hopes to lead her team to win a district championship.

Owen, nominated by Head Coach Jennifer Beach, earned this week’s award for displaying leadership qualities. Beach had high praise for this young runner.

“Jon is an amazing team player and leader! He is one of our team captains this year. He leads the team on and off the race course. He supports everyone on the team and encourages our new and younger runners,” said Beach. “He just recently won the Flrunners.com Invitational and led the team to a close 2nd overall finish. He has worked since his first year with us to set the best example and his hard work has paid off!”

“I first started running in my freshman year and was really inspired by the juniors and seniors, mainly Bo Benik and Colin Boutin. Not only was I inspired by how well they did, I was also inspired by their dedication and how well they led the team. I really want to go to States one time before I graduate and this is the last chance I have,” said Owen.

Tessa Pignataro was nominated by Head Volleyball Coach Justeen Coulson for her efforts in leading her volleyball squad.

“Tessa is one of the hardest working kids I have ever coached. Tessa shows up every day committed to excellence and committed to her team. She is a selfless athlete that understands the true concept of the word teammate. I am so impressed with Tessa on a daily basis and I know she will succeed in anything she sets her mind to because she already does that every day as a high school student,” Coulson said.

“As a Senior, I would like to carry on the legacy of winning districts. It would make it the third year in a row of winning the championship. I want my team to accomplish this goal. If we play to our full potential, we are more than capable of winning,” said Pignataro.

Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Athlete of the Week campaign was designed to focus the attention on student-athletes, recognizing them for their hard work and dedication both on and off the field. The Athlete of the Week award can be earned by displaying one of the following characteristics:

Team Player: Athletes who are nominated for excellence in team play are chosen by a coach who feels the athlete does his or her best to put direction into action, make a significant contribution to the team and continuously works to improve his or her skills, attitude and training.

Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s New Brandon Location

to Feature Innovative MRI Diagnostic Equipment

Tampa, Fla. – September 10, 2018 – Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s new Brandon location will feature Toshiba Medical’s new Vantage Titan™ 1.5T MRI machine, which includes the MR Theater. This state-of-the-art machine gives patients an immersive virtual experience and a visual focal point to distract them from the exam and is the first installation in West Florida. The MR Theater encourages patients to relax and stay still, enabling clinicians to produce efficient, high-quality imaging.

The MR Theater projects peaceful, virtual reality images onto a dome-shaped screen inside the bore. The images move with the patient table for continuous display, and the visual experience helps clinicians put their patients at ease. Combined with Toshiba Medical’s Pianissimo™ quiet scan technology, which helps reduce acoustic noise during the MR exam, patients are able to listen to in-ear audio as the MR Theater provides continuous projections for a truly engaging experience.

“Toshiba Medical’s new MR Theater helps our patients address some of the biggest challenges faced with MR imaging – claustrophobia and patient anxiety,” says Roy Sanders, M.D., President and Chief Medical Officer of Florida Orthopaedic Institute. “By putting patients at ease, our trained clinicians can complete MR exams quickly and capture the high-quality images needed for accurate diagnosis and treatment, all while increasing patient satisfaction.”

Florida Orthopaedic Institute moved a new, larger facility in Brandon to accommodate its growing practice. The FOI building is the anchor tenant at the Brandon Gateway Medical Plaza located at 560 S. Lakewood Drive. The 29,000 square-foot facility replaces the 13,000-square foot location on East Brandon Boulevard.

Florida Orthopaedic Institute

Launches New Management Services Organization

Tampa, Fla. – September 6, 2018 — Florida Orthopaedic  (FOI) announced today the formation of Orthopaedic Solutions Management (OSM). OSM, a Management Service Organization, will provide FOI with a new platform for targeted growth.

“This is an exciting time for Florida Orthopaedic Institute and OSM as we look towards expanding our footprint and building upon more than three decades of nationally renowned orthopaedic surgeons, ambulatory surgery centers and clinical expertise.

Mr. Gordon, along with FOI’s Chief Financial Officer, Janene Culumber, will lead OSM.

Dade City horse trainer Grant Pennington makes miracle comeback from devastating leg injury

By | News

ABC Action News

BY: Sean Daly
Published: August 29, 2018, 7:00 AM

DADE CITY, Fla. — Grant Pennington built Grand Pine Farm in Dade City himself.

The gorgeous Pasco County farm is a tribute to the 31-year-old’s passion for horses, which he shows and trains for an international clientele.

But the prodigy’s dream came to a terrifying halt a few years ago.

Forget about riding horses.

Grant was not sure if he would walk again after being bucked off a horse while jump training.

“Doctors and nurses were saying it was the worst break they’ve ever seen,” said Grant.

He shattered the tibia bone (or shinbone) in his left leg in 13 different places.

Grant’s mother says her son was in shock at first, angry at being thrown off his horse-training schedule. He may not remember the pain, but she remembers the screaming.

“The doctor told me that break was the most painful break you could have,” said Shawn Pennington.

After three surgeries and a total of 24 hours under the knife, Grant was immediately determined to return to what he loves best.

Within a few months, he was using his walker to slowly make his way up to the barn.

His mother was not pleased.

“I didn’t want him to,” Shawn said. “I didn’t want him in the barn. I didn’t want him to get back on the horse.”

“I was pretty bound and determined to push through that,” Grant said with a smile.

But passion and focus proved to be a magical mixture.

He walked again. He rode again. And now, he is jumping again.

Grant has two shows coming up. He says his leg feels fine.

“If you sit there and listen to people who say you can’t do this, that’s not going to work,” says Grant. “You have to have the drive and ambition to push through it.”
