New Surgical Suites
FMC has recently finished remodeling its brand new Specialty Surgical Suites, giving us the ability to provide you a private room with a VIP experience.
As a patient, it’s important to know that our orthopedic surgeons will first try to develop non-surgical solutions to address your needs. If surgery does turn out to be necessary, our orthopedic surgeons and staff will educate you on the procedure and the recovery process. As you attend Joint Class, you will be thoroughly educated about what to expect before, during, and after surgery.
At Florida Medical Center your Spine Team Patient Navigator, Bridgette White-Zaragoza will guide you through your surgery from referral through recovery. Please contact Bridgett directly at 954-730-2751. From the first visit, we collaborate with each patient to decide on the best treatment option. Often, this is not surgery. See below for examples of the range of treatments available.
