Orthopedics

The Tallahassee Memorial Orthopedic Center offers surgical joint repairs and replacements, post-operative care and inpatient rehabilitation services. We do this for thousands of residents in the Big Bend region each year. With more than 20 high-skilled orthopedic surgeons, we offer solutions for almost every part of the body including shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, feet and ankles.

Our Orthopedic Services

We offer customized, individual care and access to the latest technology available for the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic conditions.

In the past, most orthopedic surgical procedures required large incisions, lengthy hospital stays and weeks of recovery. Today, the use of small viewing scopes and much smaller surgical instruments has transformed the way that many surgical procedures are performed, particularly joint replacement surgery.
