Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Springer "At Orthopedic Specialists of SW Florida, our practice philosophy is to treat early with noninvasive, conservative treatments for degenerative conditions. Our goal is to reduce pain and improve function. We have found that for a majority of patients, conservative treatment can relieve pain and improve function without surgery. However, each patient's care is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the patient's age, level of activity, general health and the type of injury or problem. Our goal to help our patients regain a pain-free, active lifestyle."
