This content was provided by Dr. Flores "Dr. Flores and his wife, Sandra, are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters.

Jeffrey Richards."
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."
