A team approach to hip, knee and shoulder surgery
The Joint Institute at UF Health The Villages® Hospital offers a team approach to your care. Our dedicated clinical experts work with one goal in mind - to give you the best possible outcome. Our specialists take a customized approach based on each patient's specific needs to facilitate healing and prevent future injuries while reducing pain and scarring. With the area's most experienced team of orthopedic surgeons, registered nurses, physical therapists, and cases managers, our goal is to get you back to doing the things you love.
Our operating rooms have some of the most advanced equipment available for use in orthopedic surgery, including special air-handling systems to reduce the risk of postoperative infection. Surgeons have access to surgical tables specifically designed to perform the latest techniques for total hip replacement procedures. This attention to details allows for a less invasive procedure and spares muscles and tendons for superior alignment, stability, and leg length correction.
Patients are up and walking just hours after surgery. Our caring nurses and specially-trained therapists are all focused on speedy recoveries and making sure each patient gets back to the activities they enjoy most.
