Expert Knee Care That Keeps You Moving

From running across the finish line to climbing into bed, your knees propel and support you with every step. When something feels wrong, trust us to find the knee care options that are right for you. Whether it’s helping you get back on your feet with advanced orthopedic surgeries or offering fitness guidance and motivation, we’re always here for you.

It’s normal to feel a little sore after a long walk or a fall, but persistent, unremitting knee pain may indicate a more serious injury. We can help you find out what’s wrong and discover the care that’s right for you. At AdventHealth, formerly Florida Hospital, Orthopedic Institute, you’ll find a skilled and compassionate team of knee experts equipped with the latest diagnostic technology and treatment options. Signs that you may need treatment include:

  • Inability to Walk Comfortably
  • Fever
  • Joint Appears Deformed
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Pain at Night or During Rest
  • Pain That Continues for Several Days
  • Severe Pain
  • Signs of Infection, Like Redness and Warmth
  • Stiffness and Swelling

Whether your condition can be cared for at home or needs extra treatment, we’re here to help you recover in comfort and avoid future injuries.

No matter how young or active you are, knee surgery can sometimes be the most effective option for addressing knee pain. Within our network, our surgeons are equipped with the leading-edge Mako® Surgery System. Using this robotic-arm assisted technology, we can perform partial or total knee replacements and resurfacing surgeries with greater precision, removing only the damaged part of your knee. This means the healthy parts of the joint are not affected, so your knee feels more natural after your surgery. This type of procedure also has the potential to significantly reduce your recovery time.

To help you recover faster and with a lower risk of complications, we use minimally invasive procedures whenever possible. This means you’ll be able to return home sooner, heal faster and have less scarring. Other knee surgeries we offer include:

  • Distal Femur Osteotomy — A procedure that helps realign the joint and keep you active when osteoarthritis is causing knock-knee
  • Femoral Replacement — A type of arthroplasty procedure that can save the limb by replacing the knee and part of the femur (thigh bone) with an implant
  • High Tibial Osteotomy — A realignment technique to help boost stability and make movement easier when osteoarthritis is wearing down one side of the knee more than the other
  • Limb Lengthening — A technique that can replace missing bone and straighten deformities after an injury, a birth defect or due to disease

Know that your care is in safe, experienced hands. Your multidisciplinary team will include skilled surgeons, expert physical therapists and a dedicated Care Coordinator to help manage the details, so you can focus on your wellness. By using advanced technology like the Mako® System, we strive to deliver the highest standard of care possible to help you feel whole again.
