Guiding You Back Into the Swing of Things

As you move through daily life — the game, the dance, the journey — your musculoskeletal system is what holds you up, turns you around, and lets you live every moment to its fullest. When a fracture, tear, inflammation, or break brings you to a halt, it’s natural to feel frustrated and concerned. With the latest medical technology and a long history of caring for the people of Florida’s Heartland, we provide many diagnostic services to help us understand your injury or condition, so we can start providing the orthopedic treatments you need.

Our screenings and tests include:

  • Bone Scans and Bone Density Scans
  • CT Scans
  • MRIs
  • Ultrasounds
  • X-Rays

When we know more about your condition or injury, our orthopedic specialists can start bringing you healing through physical therapy, medication, or orthopedic surgery — helping you live a safe, active, and joy-filled life.
