Orthopedic Care Center
Joint pain can strike at any age and can prevent you from living the active
lifestyle you truly desire. Flagler Hospital's comprehensive Orthopedic
Care Center features an expert surgical team, orthopedic-certified nursing
staff and specially trained physical therapists who all work together
to achieve optimum outcomes for patients. Pre-surgery education classes
are offered to knee and hip replacement patients, helping to clarify expectations
and speed recovery times.
