Medical Services

As a full service orthopaedic center, the specialists and therapists at Orthopaedic Center of South Florida can treat virtually any orthopaedic condition. Our team of board certified orthopaedic physicians has over 100 years of combined experience! Our mission is to help patients who suffer from injuries or conditions of the musculoskeletal system find relief and get back to enjoying their life.

General Orthopaedics

Orthopaedics covers the care of the musculoskeletal system including joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves. OCSF offers a comprehensive range of services including diagnostics, surgical and non-surgical procedures, as well as rehabilitative physical and occupational therapy.

Sports Medicine

We are experts in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of sports-related injuries. The most common sports related injuries include cartilage tears, ligament ruptures in the knee, and shoulder or knee pain. If you have an existing injury we can examine a wide range of treatment options to determine which one is right for you. Our physical therapists can also help you prevent future injuries by working with you on strength and flexibility exercises.

  • Leg injuries
  • Knee ligament tears
  • Rotator cuff injuries

Total Joint Replacement

If you are suffering from chronic joint pain and it is determined that surgery is the best option for treatment, you can rest assured that the providers at OCSF will take good care of you. Our surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgeries, and they have an excellent track record. Our physical therapists will work closely with you before and after your surgery to ensure the best possible outcome. If you are considering joint replacement you should also consider pre-operative physical therapy. Your physician can schedule an appointment with our therapy department. Physical therapy before joint replacement can help your recovery after surgery.

  • Hip replacement surgery
  • Shoulder replacement surgery

Spine Surgery

The surgical approach to back pain is more complex than non-operative treatments. The physician’s goal is to correct the underlying abnormality with as minimal an approach as possible. OCSF surgeons are highly trained to render such sophisticated exams and render the most appropriate surgical intervention in our area. Procedures include:

  • Microscopic Discectomy
  • Microscopic-Assisted Laminectomy
  • Kyphoplasty
  • Various limited Incision Fusion Techniques
  • Lumbar Spine Fusion

Hand, Wrist & Upper Extremity

The frequency of use of our hands and arms cause numerous pain conditions to become evident. Often, they are debilitative and painful generating discomfort and inability to perform daily functions. OCSF physicians are specialists in diagnosing and treating such conditions. Some of the procedures performed are:

  • Carpal Tunnel Surgery
  • Rotator Cuff Surgery
  • Hand Fusion
  • Total Joint Replacement of Upper Extremities
  • Shoulder Reconstruction

Pain Management

The sensation of pain tells us that something is wrong with our body. Signals are sent via receptors to the spinal cord across nerve connections. Our physicians are experts in diagnosing and treating such painful conditions. Painful conditions are treated with:

  • Medications
  • Epidural Injections
  • Osteopathic Manipulations
  • Physical/Occupational Therapy
  • Surgical Intervention

Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation

Physical therapy can be a very successful non-surgical treatment for many conditions. Physical therapy can include weight training exercises, stretching, massage, and other specialized treatments. It will often be prescribed by your doctor for many conditions before and after surgery. The goal of physical therapy is to speed your recovery, improve your function and range of motion, and strengthen your muscles. Our physical therapists work closely with patients and doctors to create the best possible plan for you.
