Knee Surgery Options from the Experienced Team at Tampa General Hospital
Many individuals will require knee surgery at some point in their lives, as the knee joint – a delicate joint consisting of bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles – is susceptible to a variety of injuries and degenerative conditions. At Tampa General Hospital, we offer knee treatment to individuals who have experienced a sudden, traumatic injury and to those who have been plagued by chronic knee pain. When performing surgical procedures, our goal is to help our patients improve their mobility and overall quality of life.
At TGH, we are proud to be a leading destination for orthopedic care. Some of the reasons that so many patients trust their knee surgery procedures to us include that we:
- Have extensive experience – TGH is a high-volume center that performed more than 1,300 joint replacements in 2014 alone. This has given our physicians a vast level of expertise when it comes to providing comprehensive orthopedic care.
- Utilize the latest technology – We take advantage of technological advances such as the RIO™ Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, which provides our surgeons with real-time visual, tactile, and auditory feedback to achieve optimal outcomes. We are also one of only a few orthopedic centers to provide minimally invasive knee surgery, which can potentially reduce recovery time.
- Have been recognized for our excellence – We were named a high performing hospital for knee replacement by U.S.News & World Report. Additionally, we have received many disease-specific national certifications from The Joint Commission, including one in knee replacement.
