The bones and muscles of the body are a precise instrument and when an injury occurs, you will want the best care possible. At the Florida Hospital Orthopaedic Institute Fracture Care Center (FCC), the successful diagnosis and treatment of patients is the number one goal.
Florida Hospital has been diagnosing and treating orthopaedic conditions and injuries since 1936. This long history of service has earned Florida Hospital a reputation for orthopaedic excellence. The Hospital has performed more surgeries than any other hospital in the state. Among those surgeries was the very first Total Knee Replacement and Arthroscopic surgeries in the state…evidence of our commitment to the most advanced technology and procedures. Our dedication to innovation continues, through the work performed at the Fracture Care Center. While the FCC treats a full range of orthopaedic conditions, it is focused on advancing the field of complex orthopaedic medicine.
The Vision for the Fracture Care Center
The FCC is a destination for the treatment of complex orthopaedic needs. In 2004, J. Dean Cole, MD, a true leader in orthopaedic traumatology, became the Medical Director of the Fracture Care Center. A pioneer in orthopaedic medicine, Dr. Cole has made influential contributions to the orthopaedic field. These include ground-breaking inventions and applications, such as the Intramedullary Skeletal Kinetic Distractor (ISKD), an internal limb lengthening device.
Dr. Cole sought to establish a unique medical destination. He envisioned a team of experienced, skilled surgeons and related medical professionals, all devoted to providing high-quality, round-the-clock, minimally invasive orthopaedic surgical treatment. Under his leadership, the Fracture Care Center handles more than 4,000 musculoskeletal injuries, deformities and conditions each year. He is committed to on-going education of his team to ensure they are knowledgeable about the latest treatments.
Both the volume and complexity of the Center’s cases have provided a unique body of experience unknown to other orthopaedic professionals. This knowledge and vision is evidenced in the Fracture Care Center’s “Philosophy of Care,” a commitment to the highest quality orthopaedic care resulting in successful outcomes. This philosophy incorporates two unique principles; the “Comprehensive Care” team approach, and minimally invasive surgery (MIS) available 24/7 to patients.
