Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Connolly "Sarasota Orthopedic Associates is organized as a professional association to specialize in Orthopedic Surgery that includes diseases and conditions of the musculoskeletal system, arthritis and fractures. The organization was established by Mark S. Kauffman, M.D., in 1977 and continues to add physicians with expertise and skills that enable us to provide quality care and the latest technology. Our physicians spend several weeks each year continuing their education and improving their skills and seeking new answers to old problems in order to remain current in their field. Although our physicians all practice general orthopedic surgery, each has a special area of interest that has required additional training."
