Care Philosophy

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.

Very pleased with overall care. Dr. Fuchs has a conservative approach and didn't make me feel like surgery was my only option. I was able to get in to see the doctor quickly and his treatment plan has really helped me. I feel great and would highly recommend Dr. Fuchs!

in Sanford, FL |
If you have Dr. Fuchs for a work comp. issue, Good Luck. He will always give a diagnosis in favor of the insurance co. I had a failed back surgery confirmed by 3 other doctors & a post surgical MRI that he performed. He refused several attempts asking for further treatment and pain management.

It has been a great experience. The consultation, the Dr. , the medical assistants, and all of the office staff have been wonderful.

No nonsense, right to the point opinion regarding your condition. If you need surgery he explains the procedure and the approx recovery time. His staff is polite, intelligent, and will also do their best to answer any questions regarding your condition and the procedure you are having done.
