Find Healing for Your Joint Pain
- Diagnosing Your Orthopedic Symptoms
Before you can start healing, you need to get to the root of the problem. With advanced imaging equipment like bone scans and MRIs, we’ll locate the source of your discomfort and discover what’s causing you pain. Our screenings and tests include:
- Bone Density Scans
- CT Scans
Our orthopedic teams can help find and diagnose issues in a range of areas, including:
- Feet and Ankles
- Knees and Hips
- Necks and Backs
- Shoulders and Elbows
- Hands and Wrists
Once we’ve identified the issue, we can discuss the best treatment for you. With better knowledge and understanding, we can pave a path forward.

- Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) Program
AdventHealth Wesley Chapel 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.

- A Recognized Team. Better Care.
You want a team you can count on. At AdventHealth Wesley Chapel, formerly Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, that’s what you’ll find. Our Orthopedic Care program has been recognized as a Center of Excellence for Hip and Knee Replacements in honor of our ability to provide high-quality care through some of the latest technology. We also participate in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement program, meaning we can support more patients with better care. Our goal is your goal: orthopedic wellness. Our elite team and exceptional program are how we get there.
- Advanced Robotic Technology, Your Smoother Recovery
Your hip and knees are in good hands here. Our skilled orthopedic surgeons use the latest robotic system, Mako™ robotic arm-assisted technology, to help you feel better faster.
By using advanced robotic technology for your hip or knee replacement, we can greatly reduce your pain, scarring, and recovery time, as compared to traditional joint replacement surgery.
Some benefits of robotic technology for knee surgery include:
- More precise resurfacing of only the arthritic portion of the knee
- Preservation of healthy knee tissue and bone
- Facilitation of optimal implant positioning to result in a more natural-feeling knee following surgery
- Quicker recovery and a shorter hospital stay compared to traditional total knee replacement surgery
Some benefits of robotic technology for total hip replacement include:
- Accurate placement of your hip implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic arm system, which can reduce the likelihood of hip dislocation
- More consistency in leg length, potentially decreasing the need for a shoe lift
- Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together, which may improve the lifetime of the implant
We understand there’s a lot to consider when beginning treatment, but our physicians are here to talk you through the options and help determine if any of these procedures are right for you.
