Orthopedic surgery

The Joint Institute at The Villages® Regional Hospital offers comprehensive care for conditions and injuries affecting the shoulder, hip and knee joints. Our surgical specialists pride themselves on taking a customized approach based on each patient's specific needs. This tailored approach facilitates healing and prevents future injuries while reducing pain and scarring.

Following a rigorous onsite review in early 2019, the Hospital was awarded Gold Seal of Approval®Core Certification for both Hip Replacement and Knee Replacement by The Joint Commission. This certification signifies a higher level of care for patients and makes The Villages® Regional Hospital a leader in orthopedics.

Our operating rooms have some of the most advanced equipment available for use in orthopedic surgery, including special air-handling systems to reduce the risk of postoperative infection. Surgeons have access to surgical tables specifically designed to perform the latest techniques for total hip replacement procedures. This attention to details allows for a less invasive procedure and spares muscles and tendons for superior alignment, stability, and leg length correction.

Patients are up and walking just hours after surgery. Our caring nurses and specially-trained therapists are all focused on speedy recoveries and making sure each patient gets back to the activities they enjoy most.

Robotic surgery

The Villages® Regional Hospital was among the first in the nation to bring the benefits of the da Vinci® Xi Surgical System to patients. In a world where millimeters can make a difference, precision is everything. Investing in the most advanced surgical systems is part of our ongoing effort to give patients access to the latest technologies and treatments.

Robotic-assisted surgery allows the surgeon's hand to make extremely detailed movements, revolutionizing urological, gynecological, thoracic, cardiac and general surgeries and procedures to reduce recovery times and return patients back to their lives as quickly and painlessly as possible.
