An Brief Overview
Contact Phone Number: 863-646-5960
The Osteomyelitis Center of Central Florida is a group of health care providers that are dedicated in providing a collective, advanced, and effective treatment for the patient. It is within this environment that the patient will experience a team approach to the treatment of their bone infection. This team will address the factors that negatively impact healing and will provide the support needed during the healing process to allow the patient to heal and return to family, hobbies, and work. Your interaction with these providers will be in their private practices.
Treatment of osteomyelitis in the 21st century still eludes an FDA approved medicine or surgical procedure. At The Osteomyelitis Center of Central Florida we welcome your referral. However, with the resources of a comprehensive medical team approach including: proper antibiotic management, advanced wound care, advanced and state of the art surgical treatment, vascular evaluation and intervention, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and prosthetic management with rehabilitation the patient’s complete recovery will be our goal.
