Lifestyle-restoring joint replacements have become very predictable and reliable procedures for patients struggling with debilitating joint pain. Our highly sought-after and nationally recognized Total Orthopedic Joint Replacement Specialists perform more joint replacement procedures than anyone else in Northeast Florida. Southeast Orthopedic Specialists is raising the bar for joint replacement procedures in the region on every front, from using leading-edge technologies all the way to providing exceptional patient education.
Our Total Joint Replacement Specialists, Dr. Duffy, Dr. Lincoln, Dr. Redmond and Dr. Deshmukh, are fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons who practice exclusively in the area of joint replacement surgery and total joint replacement therapy. This specialty practice allows them to stay on the forefront of rapidly improving medical technology, as demonstrated by their utilization of innovative, minimally-invasive procedures.
Leveraging a team of highly trained medical staff, including physician and medical assistants, we emphasize patient education and communication in our joint replacement clinic, while also providing complete case management through pre-operative evaluation, surgery, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and follow-up care.
While it’s true that joint replacements are becoming more and more common, these complex procedures are never routine. To improve the understanding of our patients throughout the process of this life-changing surgery, we have created, in conjunction with St. Vincent’s Medical Center, a preoperative joint education class which is mandatory for all patients undergoing joint replacement surgery. All surgeries are performed at our primary joint replacement hospital, St. Vincent’s Orthopedic Center of Excellence, located at their main campus in Riverside.
The collaboration between our joint replacement surgeons and the healthcare professionals at St. Vincent’s has created a remarkable joint replacement center in Jacksonville, FL. The St. Vincent’s Orthopedic Center of Excellence is a comprehensive joint replacement program. This program is designed to educate patients and their families about the joint replacement surgery experience at St. Vincent’s, streamline the admissions process, ensure the surgery itself is performed in a state-of-the-art operating room using the most advanced equipment, techniques and implants in the world, and provide excellent care for each patient after surgery. Postoperative care is given by a number of highly-trained nurses, physical therapists, medical specialists, and discharge planners who help guide the patients’ transition back to their home environment.
Whether bending over to tend a garden or kicking a ball in the park with your loved ones, you depend on the joints in your hips and knees to work properly and painlessly. When routine activities become impossible, surgery is often necessary. You can rely on the exclusive specialization of our joint replacement surgeons in Jacksonville, FL, the Southeast Orthopedic Specialists Total Joint Replacement Specialist team, to help restore you to an active, pain-free lifestyle with minimal invasion and optimal care.
