Treating Fractures of the Legs, Arms, & Shoulders

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the most commonly-broken long bone in the body is the tibia, or shin bone. It is followed by the clavicle (shoulder) and the radius (forearm). These long bones are both vital to normal, everyday function and vulnerable to traumatic impact or overuse.

Poor healing or less experienced care may result in uneven limbs. For less active individuals, this is not an issue; however, for high-performance athletes or active people, even limbs are crucial to coordination and optimum mobility. That’s why our office offers comprehensive treatments, including non-surgical and surgical solutions combined with innovative therapies.

Why Our Orthopaedics Team

At Tenet Florida Physician Services, our orthopaedic specialists have experience treating active individuals in the highest levels of performance. Some of our surgeons served as the team physician for professional sports teams, or treated soldiers. We have helped hundreds of patients regain mobility and strength in demanding circumstances.
