Florida Orthopedic Institute has the largest and most advanced sports medicine service division in the region. Under the direction of Dr. Seth Gasser, it’s widely recognized as a leader in treating athletic injuries for patients of all ages. FOI is the exclusive orthopedic provider and team physician for the University of Tampa, University of South Florida, and St. Leo University.
Dr. Gasser: Using innovative state-of-the-art treatments and a multi-disciplinary approach, our team consists of sports medicine surgeons, non-operative primary care sports medicine doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, and certified athletic trainers.
Dr. Remaley: 25 years ago, we were one of the first orthopedic groups in the country to offer an advanced surgical technique known today as MACI that helps regenerate damaged cartilage. We continue to provide state-of-the-art cutting-edge technologies to treat articular cartilage injuries.
Dr. Gasser: Having extensive experience in treating multi-ligament knee injuries, we offer athletes state-of-the-art treatment with surgical techniques that anatomically reconstruct all damaged ligaments. This allows most athletes to return to their sport from what was previously a career-ending injury.
Dr. Sellman: Our primary care sports medicine doctors offer the most scientifically validated computerized evaluation and treatment for concussions. This helps ensure an appropriate period before returning to sports and the lowest risk possible for repeated concussions and long-term problems.
Dr. Nofsinger: We’re actively involved in research and product development to improve the instrumentation, surgical techniques, and outcomes in the arthroscopic treatment of shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff and labral tears. With our new innovations, we can now repair shoulder injuries that previously had no satisfactory treatment.
FOI’s board-certified surgeons are fellowship trained and hold additional subspecialty board certification in sports medicine, providing the best orthopedic solutions for every bone, joint, ligament, tendon, and muscle injury. This expertise allows FOI to provide a level of care unattainable elsewhere in the Tampa Bay area.
