Tampa General is a regional referral center for complex orthopedic surgery. Orthopedic care at TGH provides improved mobility and function to enhance your quality of life. In 2012, TGH performed over 5,500 orthopedic procedures.
For the ninth consecutive year, orthopedic care at Tampa General received national recognition. TGH has been named to U.S.News & World Report’s list of America’s Best Hospitals for orthopedics every year since 2005. This honor recognizes Tampa General’s multidisciplinary team approach to comprehensive orthopedic care.
TGH’s orthopedic trauma program and knee, hip and shoulder replacement programs have received disease-specific certification from The Joint Commission. This prestigious accreditation is awarded after an on-site review of clinical practices, improvement measurement plans, patient education, research, and how clinical staff from different medical disciplines work together for the good of the patient.
A multidisciplinary team of physicians, supported by ARNPs, RNs, physical and occupational therapists, social workers/care coordinators and home care coordinators, care for our orthopedic patients.
