Occupational Therapy

Florida Orthopaedic Institute provides in house physical and occupational therapy services for the rehabilitation needs of our patients. The very nature of our orthopedic practice often involves integrating patient care with physical or occupational therapists after seeing one of our physicians. Our goal is to offer immediate access to our therapy centers and to initiate treatment within 24-48 hours of the physician’s referral. This permits seamless care while allowing us to monitor the quality of your care.

At Florida Orthopaedic Institute, our physicians and dedicated staff members understand how important it is for you to fully recover from surgery and return to your work and home environments to the best of your ability.
