Florida Surgeons Seek to Spark Change in the Healthcare Industry

By | Announcements, Our Physicians

Dr. Mark Frankle, M.D. and Dr. Steven Lyons, M.D. Discuss Healthcare Legislature before Congress on Capitol Hill

Tampa, FL – Jul. 11, 2019 – During the 2019 American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) National Orthopaedic Leadership Conference (NOLC), orthopedic surgeons from across the country arrived on Capitol Hill to motivate Congress to support the Hospital Competition Act of 2019 (H.R. 506) and the Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2019 (H.R. 1418, S.35).

Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s Dr. Mark Frankle, M.D. and Dr. Steven Lyons, M.D. were two of over 300 surgeons that met with congressional representatives last month to voice their support of the legislative bills that are slated to improve the overall care of their patients. The two were met by fellow Floridian, Val Demings, a United States Representative from Florida’s 10th congressional district, who talked with them at length about solving the problems currently within the healthcare system.

The Hospital Competition Act of 2019 seeks to increase the amount of choice and access patients have to healthcare by lifting the restrictions on physician-owned hospitals, discouraging the merging of hospitals and increasing price transparency among others.

The Competitive Health Insurance Reform Act of 2019 aims to provide more transparency and oversight into the healthcare industry by ensuring that federal antitrust laws also apply to the health insurance business.

Also supported on Capitol Hill was the Protecting People from Surprise Medical Bills Act. This bill seeks to provide patients with a means to overcome ‘surprise’ medical bills. Unexpected billing not only impacts cost on the patient’s end, but also affects the relationship between the patient and the physician.

Orthopaedic surgeons from across the country, including your physicians at Florida Orthopaedic Institute seek to ensure the greatest of outcomes for their patients. In supporting these bills, the satisfaction rate among patients only has potential to increase.

Information For Amputees – The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI

By | Announcements

Florida Orthopaedic Institute announces a dedicated clinic for patients with upper and lower amputation, providing information for amputees – The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI.

The Clinic is ideal and best suited for patients experiencing pain due to neuroma or phantom limb pain, unable to wear a prosthetic, unable to function and other amputee concerns.  

Individuals with amputations face many daily challenges that can significantly affect their lives, including general health, wellness, mobility, independence and more. The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI helps amputees by offering patients a multidisciplinary approach to the latest surgical innovations and technology to help them restore maximum limb performance and live life to the fullest.

The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI is led by surgeon Dr. Jason Nydick, a Florida native who was born and raised in Sarasota. After receiving his upper extremity fellowship with Florida Orthopaedic Institute, he dedicated his years from 2011-2014 to serving in the United States Navy at Pensacola Naval Hospital, including deployment to Kandahar Multinational Role 3 Combat Hospital in Afghanistan.

Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI includes several healthcare providers attending each monthly clinic. New reconstructive procedures and technology are available for patients with upper and lower amputations. Cutting-edge techniques and surgeries include targeted muscle reinnervation.

Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) brings amputees relief and helps them get back to their daily lives. TMR was initially developed to work with new technology in bio-prosthetic limbs, but surgeons noticed that amputees who had TMR surgery also reported a significant reduction in both neuroma and phantom limb pain.

The Reconstructive Limb Loss Clinic at FOI coordinates with local and regional prosthetists and utilizes the most advanced myoelectric prostheses available. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, pain management specialists, and psychologists are available to the patient as needed for a comprehensive patient solution.

During the Clinic, patients will receive an initial evaluation by Dr. Nydick to determine if they are a candidate for the procedures and then be able to meet with both a therapist and a prosthetist, all in one appointment. Every medical professional involved in the clinic has been carefully selected for their experience and expertise on working with this patient population. Through a strong partnership with local medical professionals dedicated in achieving a common goal of improving the lives of post-amputee patients, this Clinic offers a truly innovative approach to the Tampa Bay community and its surrounding areas.

The Clinic occurs on the first Tuesday of each month at the main FOI campus, 13020 Telecom Pkwy N., Temple Terrace, FL 33637 FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL ERICA NIEVES AT 813-978-9700, EXTENSION 6265

Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s New Brandon Location to Feature Innovative MRI Diagnostic Equipment

Tampa, Fla. – October 1, 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.
