I believe in taking the time to treat my patients in entirety so they can quickly return to the activities they love.

Dr. Garcia joined Florida Orthopaedic Institute in 2009. An undergraduate of the University of Florida at Gainesville, Dr. Garcia received his medical degree from the University of South Florida, College of Medicine in 2003. After completing a residency in orthopedic surgery from Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Illinois, Dr. Garcia completed a fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Dr. Garcia is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and also has attained the Certificate of Added Qualification of Hand Surgery. He is also a Full Member of both the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.

When he is not practicing medicine, Dr. Garcia enjoys traveling, playing golf, and playing the guitar.


I dislocated my shoulder in the worst possible way, I could not move my arm. When I went to Dr. Garcia he discovered one tendon had been broken for several years. He fixed not only what happened but also the tendon that was broken before. It has been 5 months, I am moving and lifting my arm better every day. Thank God for Dr. Garcia, he is the best!

“I had surgery performed by Dr. Garcia on my hand about a year and a half ago and I remember coming into the office to get my stitches taken out and I totally fainted.  Dr. Garcia supported me and kept my airway open so I could breathe. I was so scared, but he just kept telling me it would be okay and he made me feel so much better. Dr. Garcia is my favorite doctor.”

I was very nervous about my procedure, but after talking to Dr.Garcia and Rosie Johnson who answered all of my questions and listened to all of my concerns and assured me that everything would be fine and it was. My procedure turned out great. Rosie’s professionalism, and listening skills are awesome. Dr. Garcia performed an awesome job and the Surgery Center Staff was awesome as well, from the reception area to the nurses and the anesthesiologist.. Thank you for a job well done!

I am coming up on one year after my broken wrist insident. I am an art teacher, in my 50 s. I decided to rollerskate like I was in my 20s. It was very hard to see my wrist in an “s” configuration. From the begining of my nightmare, I trusted Dr. GARCIA. One year later , I was going to send him an anniversary thank you to comemorate my injury. Celebrate my recovery. I got on here to get the address. I felt compelled to share my gratitude for this gift from God. I could not have imagined my ability to not only use my wrist again,but to be able to draw,paint, create again. I feel so appreciative I can not adequately express my gratitude. Except to say, thank you Dr.. Garcia for sharing your gift.
