Your best choice for world-class orthopedic knee care.

Your solution starts here.

Pain, swelling, or stiffness in your knee? Decreased mobility? A creaking, crackly sound when your knee moves? Or the feeling of warmth in the joint? These are possible signs of knee osteoarthritis – when the articular cartilage within the knee joint wears down over time.

The good news? The physicians and surgeons at Florida Orthopaedic Institute are experts in diagnosing and treating all types of knee conditions. Whether it’s a non-surgical solution, or a partial or total knee replacement – no one’s better at keeping you active. Because nobody does knee orthopedics like we do.

• Florida Orthopaedic Institute performs more knee surgeries than anyone in the region.

• At the forefront of surgical developments for the knee by incorporating robotic-assisted technologies to improve patient outcomes.

Non-surgical Options
Are Always Our First Choice.

Our philosophy is to first try all appropriate non-surgical methods to increase mobility and function. This may include medication, bracing, injections, physical or occupational therapy, or chiropractic services – all of which we provide. We also discuss all available treatment options. Treating your pain with conservative options is always our priority.

If non-surgical options aren’t a complete success, then, and only then, do we suggest surgery.

More Skill. More Knowledge. More Healing.

With 128 years combined experience, our knee surgeons are referred for local, state-wide, and international patients. As one of the leading revision knee centers in the United States, their expertise has restored many failed joint replacements so patients may successfully return to a normal lifestyle.

Florida Orthopaedic Institute physicians are known nationally and internationally for their work in orthopedic surgery and have been named among the best orthopedic physicians in America.

 We are different from other orthopedic groups because our team of highly skilled, board certified physicians have advanced training, providing a level of care unattainable elsewhere in the Tampa Bay area. Our surgeons are fellowship trained, which requires an additional year of study in the orthopedic knee subspecialty.
