Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Flores "The Orthopedic Specialists of SW Florida practice philosophy is to treat early with noninvasive, conservative treatments for degenerative conditions. Conservative treatments include a splint to immobilize the joint, analgesic medications for pain, and cortisone injections. Simple measures may accomplish the goal of pain relief.

Optimal treatment depends on a complex analysis of the patient's condition. For arthritis that affects the hand, wrist or elbow, surgery is only appropriate when conservative therapies are insufficient to relieve pain or improve function. For nerve or tendon problems, minimally invasive procedures are often appropriate to prevent permanent loss of function. When we recommend surgery, we do so to avoid the risk of disease progression and permanent disability. Treatment options are determined on a case-by-case basis."

I had to have extensive shoulder repair surgery and in three months time I am close to being better than new. His patience, expertise, professionalism, kindness and support were greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend him and am very grateful for what he did for me. He was very informative in terms I could understand.

I want to thank you and your team for taking excellent care of me pre and post surgery. The incision looks great and I have not needed any pain medication!

I visited Dr. Flores for the first time on January 27,2017. His staff was very professional and helpful. Dr. Flores spent the time necessary to help me with my problem with a trigger finger in my left hand. He told me that it would take about 4 weeks for the steroid shot and there would be some numbness in the area were the shot was given. Within 7 hours, I felt better than I have in 3 months of living with the pain, EXCELLENT DOCTOR, EXCELLENT EXPLAINATION OF PROBLEM,
Ft Myers, FL |
Reccomended surgery and that was not needed
