Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Swartz "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."

in Punta Gorda |
Dr Francesca has performed two major surgeries: total reverse shoulder replacement and complete knee replacement. She is definitely keeping me from :falling apart. I am a 70 yr old lady who thinks the world of this doctor and her compassion and patience with her patients. Definitely would recommend her.

Dr. Swartz is amazing! She is empathic (she also has knee problems) and compassionate. I trust her emphatically and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great Orthopedic Dr.
St Petersburg, FL |
I did not get past the scheduling department. Lisa insisted that I have all past records sent from the other Orthopedic Surgeons that I have seen. As this would obviously taint my relationship with my current Surgeons and also the second opinion by Dr. Swartz I will now go to my second option for a second opinion and see a Surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC which is the top rated Orthopedic Hospital in the US.

in Ft Myers, FL |
Wonderful Doctor, great bedside manner. She is easy to talk to and explains everything in a way that is simple to undrrstand. Her follow-up is excellent, too. Mom's first hip replacement has been a great success. Now on to the second one, and we wouldn't consider anyone else to to the surgery!
