Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Glosser "As a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist, I have come to realize that my over 25 years of practice in Homestead area has been a wonderful experience. I have come to love doing hip and knee joint replacement surgeries at Homestead Hospital since the new facility was built. Most of my outpatient arthroscopic surgeries are done at the Miami Surgical Center which has the best arthroscopic equipment in the Miami area. My Physical Therapy staff are well equiped to help you get over most problems."
