Orthopedic Treatments to Heal Your Joints

It can be exhilarating to ride your bike up a hill, make that basket, or race your grandkids across the park (and let them win, of course). But a tear, a fracture, or a break can bring these activities to a halt, making simple actions painful and difficult. At AdventHealth Waterman, formerly Florida Hospital Waterman, you’ll find expert orthopedic surgeons and a specialized care team all ready to support you in your quest for greater strength and healing.

As the first and only hospital in Lake County to receive a Joint Commission-certified Gold Seal of Approval for Knee and Hip Replacement, we’re committed to providing the very best in orthopedic treatments. And with services like minimally invasive orthopedic surgery, physical therapy, and an inpatient rehabilitation center, we’ll help you find the flexibility and freedom of movement you need to embrace life fully once again.

Knee or hip pain can make life difficult, as can any type of joint pain. You don’t want to live with joint discomfort any longer than you have to. With the use of our advanced X-rays, MRIs, and bone scans, we can help you figure out what’s wrong and start bringing you relief as soon as possible.

Our screenings and tests include:

  • Bone Scans and Bone Density Scans

Our orthopedic specialists can help find and diagnose issues in a range of areas, including:

  • Feet and Ankles
  • Knees and Hips
  • Joints
  • Necks and Backs
  • Shoulders, Elbows, Hands, and Wrists

Once we’ve diagnosed your condition, we’ll discuss how we can best care for you, whether that includes pain management, therapy, or orthopedic surgery. We’ll do whatever it takes to help you heal.

Care From a Team of Orthopedic Specialists

Sometimes, all you need to turn that joint injury around is a little physical therapy. Other times, you’ll need something like our Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial Knee Replacement Surgery to get rid of intense knee pain. Whatever you need for healing, you’ll find it here at our Joint Replacement Center, which is certified by the Joint Commission with a Gold Seal of Approval for knee and hip replacement surgeries. Our specialized orthopedic treatments and services include:

  • Arthroscopic Surgery
  • BioPro Total Knee Replacement Surgery — In this procedure the surgeon uses the ligaments in the knee to support the implant, meaning you will experience increased stability and motion
  • Custom Implant Knee Replacement Surgery
  • Fracture Care and Emergency Services
  • Inpatient and Outpatient Orthopedic Rehabilitation
  • Joint Replacement Educational and Surgery Preparation Classes
  • Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total or Partial Joint Replacement Surgery — Using smaller incisions, more personalized prostheses, and robotic guidance, these joint replacements can be safer and feel more natural

Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) Program

AdventHealth Waterman is participating in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program. The program is a new payment model being tested for episodes of care related to total knee and total hip replacements under Medicare, with the goal of supporting better and more efficient care coordination for patients undergoing the most common inpatient surgeries.

The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model continues to pay providers under existing payment systems, but holds hospitals responsible for the quality and costs of the initial procedure through 90 days after the patient is discharged. Through the CJR program, CMS expects improved coordination of care among hospitals, physicians, and post-acute care providers – from surgery to recovery –to benefit patients and result in better outcomes and fewer complications.

Connected, Coordinated Care

Private rooms, inpatient rehabilitation, a group therapy room, and all the medical expertise you need to turn your condition around — that’s what you’ll find at AdventHealth Waterman. An Orthopedics Coordinator will guide you through the orthopedic treatment process, helping you prepare for surgery, connecting you with therapists, and answering any questions you have along the way. With a range of services in our network, we want to make your care more convenient and empowering.

Preparing for Surgery

If you have a surgery scheduled, you’ll be invited to our free pre-surgery joint replacement class. You’ll learn what to expect before and after surgery, how to maximize your joint health through nutrition, safety, and physical therapy, and how to prepare for your hospital stay. At the end of the class, you’ll have the chance to ask any questions you may have. We know that when you’re well-informed, you’re more confident in your care. Because of our dedication to your whole-person wellness, we’d like to bring you not only physical healing, but lifted spirits. Complete the form here to watch the education class online.

An Exciting New Payment Possibility

You want to feel mobile, free, and strong. But you don't want to worry about how much your care is going to cost when you're focusing on healing. That’s why we participate in the Medicare- and Medicaid-funded Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program that helps pay for total knee and hip replacement surgeries. Talk to your doctor to find out if you qualify.
