Testimonials

Dr. Nydick was excellent! His diagnosis was quick and he didn’t waste any time scheduling the needed surgery for the ruptured tendon that I had from an infected cat bite. He even agreed to do the surgery on a Saturday (two days before the scheduled appointment) which I was thrilled about! I’m at my first recheck appointment and everything seems to look good right now. Of course, the treatment will continue with a splint, physical therapy and antibiotic infusions for the next 2 weeks, but the worst is over as far as I’m concerned. Thank you so much, Dr. Nydick. You and your team were amazing!

Dr. Nydick and his staff are always very courteous and professional. They show a true interest in my well being and in myself. My wife and I have both had surgeries performed by Dr. Nydick and would highly recommend him and his team.

I injured my hand by severing the tendons for my right index finger. After excellent emergency care at Tampa General Hospital that evening, I was referred to and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Nydick at Florida Orthopaedic Institute. The next morning, surgery was performed on my hand and my healing began. I’m so grateful to say that my last physical therapy appointment is scheduled for this Friday, a mere five weeks post-surgery. Because of Dr. Nydick’s skill and the assigned post-surgery therapy, I now have a complete recovery. Thank you to all medical teams who contributed to my treatment and recovery. I couldn’t have asked for better.

I came to Dr. Nydick with broken bones that had already fused together. He scheduled my surgery for the next day! He knew it was a time sensitive matter and I’m so thankful for his expertise. I would suggest him for any orthopaedic needs. He is very well educated and knows his bones! Also, the surgery went very smooth. Him and his staff are overall THE BEST!

I saw Dr. Nydick for a torn rotator cuff. He provided me a thorough explanation of the problem, the proposed procedure, and possible outcomes–didn’t leave me with any questions. Totally a true professional surgeon. I would definitely recommend him!

The staff at Florida Orthopaedic Institute’s surgery center treated my hand for trigger finger. A short but delicate surgery performed by Dr. Nydick. I was treated with care, dignity, and respect while at the surgery center. I highly recommend Dr. Nydick and Florida Orthopaedic Institute for all of your upper extremity needs.

I had a very difficult shoulder injury that torn my labrum after having a seizure due to an adverse reaction to medication. The labrum was repaired quite nicely, however, I was still having pain and it was discovered that the arthritis in my shoulder was very advanced due to the trauma. After a second surgery to remove scar tissue with no success, Dr. Nydick finally suggested a shoulder replacement. He was hesitant due to my young age, 39, but there were no other alternatives and living in pain for years until I am older was not in the cards. The replacement went great and my recovery time was well above the normal progression. After a few months I had full range of motion and was able to take less and less of my pain medication to the point where I am pain medication free! Thank you so much Dr. Nydick for your patience and determination to fix my problem and live a pain free life from now on. You truly are a masterful surgeon and I would highly recommend Dr. Nydick to anyone in need of shoulder treatment. Dr. Nydick and the entire Florida Orthopaedic Institute staff were fantastic and I could not have had a better experience. Thanks again!

I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to Dr. Nydick and his staff.  I had a severely comminuted fracture of my left wrist on 7/3/17 and live an hour north of Tampa where our Physician choice is extremely limited.  I called Florida Orthopaedic Institute on 7/5/17 and requested to be seen ASAP.  Fortunately for me, Dr. Nydick was available.  He saw me that same day and recommended surgical repair of my wrist.  I was able to have surgery on 7/7/17 and my recovery began!  Dr. Nydick did a great job repairing my shattered wrist.  I started therapy about 6 weeks later and I have a great outcome – almost full range of motion but certainly full function of my wrist.  He is kind, has exceptional skills, and he listens to your concerns and works with you to make sure you obtain optional recovery.  I could not have asked for a better physician and team to work with so, THANK YOU for giving me my left arm back!

While visiting my daughter’s family in Florida I fell and broke my elbow.  In fact, it was completely separated.  Not having any idea whom to call, Florida Orthopaedic Institute was suggested by a New York Orthopaedic doctor contact. When I called for an appointment on a Monday, I was able to see Dr. Jason Nydick the next day.  From the smiling young ladies at the front desk to Nurse Jacquie and Administrative Assistant Erica. I was treated with the utmost kindness, care, efficiency, and professionalism. When Dr. Nydick talked with me, I realized he surrounded himself with people of like qualities.  At once I felt confident in Dr. Nydick and his medical decisions.  I am definitely pleased with the results of this surgery which occurred on Nov. 20, 2017.  Already much of my range of motion has returned without having to go to rehab, but just by doing simple daily exercises on my own.  I would highly recommend Dr. Jason Nydick and his staff at Florida Orthopaedic Institute to all!

I do not have words to explain how nice I was treated and the hospital staff was great! I love Dr. Nydick, he is an excellent doctor. Each day I am feeling better hoping to go fishing in the near future. Thanks Dr. Nydick!

In Feb of 2018 I severed a tendon, in my hand, causing my thumb to quit working, properly. Dr. Jason Nydick reattached the severed tendon and got me started on being able to use my thumb again. It is now one month later and my rehab is progressing well!

I just wanted to let everyone with TATTOO’s know that this Doctor is awesome! I had a Distal Bicep repair done on my sleeved right arm. I was very concerned that my art work was going to be destroyed by this surgery. Dr. Nydick and his assistant not only repaired my arm back to 100% but the incredible part is you can’t even tell that there was an incision in my arm! I am extremely pleased with the outcome of both. Thank you for the great work!

Tim M.

A great doctor! Extremely knowledgeable and efficient. Dr. Nydick gave me my life back after almost losing my hand. The staff was friendly and very accommodating.

I have been very pleased with Dr. Nydick. He has performed two surgeries after a crushing dog bite injury to my hand. I find that Dr. Nydick is soft spoken, friendly and to the point. All in all, Dr. Nydick wants me to be better and live pain free. Thank you, Dr. Nydick, for caring and doing what is best for me.

I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for Dr. Nydick and his staff. I had a severely comminuted fracture of my left wrist. I live an hour north of Tampa where our physician choice is extremely limited. I called Florida Orthopaedic Institute on July 5th and requested an appointment as soon as possible. Fortunately for me, Dr. Nydick was available. He saw me that same day and recommended surgical repair of my wrist. I was able to have surgery on July 7th and my recovery began! Dr. Nydick did a great job repairing my shattered wrist. I started therapy about six weeks later and I have a great outcome-almost full range of motion is back and I have full function of my wrist. He is kind, has exceptional surgical skills, listens to your concerns, and works with you to make sure you obtain recovery. I could not have asked for a better physician and team to work with. Thank you for giving me my left arm back!

I had a severe injury that tore my labrum after having a seizure due to an adverse reaction to medication. The labrum was repaired nicely however, I was still in pain and developed arthritis in my shoulder due to the trauma. Dr. Nydick suggested a shoulder replacement. He and I were hesitant due to my young age, thirty-nine years old, but there were no other alternatives and living in pain was no longer an option. The replacement went great and my recovery time was well above normal progression. After a few months, I had regained my full range of motion and was able to take less and less of my pain medication. Today, I am pain medication free! Thank you so much Dr. Nydick for your patience and determination to fix my problem. You truly are a masterful surgeon and I would highly recommend Dr. Nydick to anyone in need of shoulder treatment. Dr. Nydick, along with the entire staff at Florida Orthopaedic Institute, were fantastic and I could not have had a better experience. Thanks again!

I saw Dr. Nydick for a torn rotator cuff. He provided me with a thorough explanation of the problem, the proposed procedure and possible outcomes, I left the office with no further questions. On the day of surgery, there was an issue with my insurance company. Dr. Nydick explained the problem, but said he could do the procedure later that day- he did not leave me hanging. Totally a professional surgeon… I would definitely recommend him!

I was referred by my primary doctor to go to Florida Orthopaedic Institute because both hands constantly fell asleep. I have been struggling with this for 3 years. I met Dr. Jason Nydick and he discussed several things with me pertaining to both of my hands. At the end of my first visit with Dr. Nydick he wanted me to go for an EMG to verify what he suspected was the issue. At the EMG facility Dr. Newman verified exactly what Dr. Nydick suspected, carpal tunnel in both of my hands. After the surgery, I already felt relief and couldn’t believe it! My right hand, after several hours was completely normal. I am scheduling surgery for my left hand immediately. In my book, Dr. Nydick is a very good doctor and professional. Everybody at Florida Orthopaedic Institute treated me with respect and made me feel safe. Thank you Dr. Nydick and staff!

I had surgery on my right hand to help relieve pain from arthritis, and carpel tunnel surgery at the same time. This was done in July, 2016. From start to finish, I was given excellent care and would highly recommend Dr. Nydick and the staff at Florida Orthopaedic. From being greeted by courteous front desk staff, to friendly and knowledgeable medical assistant, to Dr. Nydick, treatment flowed seamlessly. I received prompt attention and excellent care.

I recently underwent surgery to correct Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Trigger Fingering on my right hand. The entire staff both in the office and at the surgery center were terrific.  Dr. Nydick fully understood the issues I was experiencing and explained my options.  I chose to have the surgical release(s) performed and I am 2 weeks out and having no problems.

I recently broke my wrist and was seen by Dr. Infante who was the Orthopedic Dr. on call that night for the hospital where I was seen.

I followed up with Dr. Nydick.  He took the time to listen to my questions and concerns and truly heard me.  It turned out I needed surgery.  I had my post-op follow-up yesterday and everything was healing well.  Throughout this whole ordeal (about a month now), he has been available and genuinely concerned about my comfort and well being.

This entire group (Florida Orthopaedic Institute) is incredible.  Having said that, everyone I had contact with was exceptional, accommodating and professional.  Not only will I recommend them to anyone, especially family and friends, but I just recently moved about 3 hours out of Tampa and would STILL travel back to be treated by them.  They are an exceptional group of people and I could not be more pleased with my treatment (from both the medical staff and the administrative branch) or my outcome.

I am very grateful for the excellent care I received.

The doctor was very friendly as well as all the staff and nurses. They checked and rechecked everything. They reassured us and made our daughter feel very safe and calm. Thank you so much.
