Individualized Orthopaedic Care

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide exceptional orthopaedic care to our community in an efficient and compassionate manner. 

Your Joints want to Move

Your joints want to move. Cycling, Yoga, Tennis and almost any sport or exercise can play a part in maintaining healthy bones and joints.

At Florida Joint Care Institute, we are proud to provide care following evidenced based treatment guidelines. When someone suffers from a joint ailment such as arthritis, it is recommended to engage a low impact exercise program. This helps to keep your joints limber and stable without contributing excessive impact to the joint surface.

Part of this may involve weight loss. As you take a step, the forces across the hip and knee joints are as much as triple your body weight. Squatting increases stresses in front of the knee five-fold. That means losing 10 pounds can decrease the forces seen by your lower extremity joints by 30 pounds! It’s an incredible return on your efforts with even small amounts of weight loss.

At Florida Joint Care Institute, we wish you a healthy and happy new year. We hope you can maintain a pain free and active lifestyle for many years to come.


"Thank you Dr. Mates & staff for a successful surgery. I cannot thank you enough for providing me with the best nursing staff that I could have imagined. Everyone in the office has been an amazing team. We really appreciate your dedication towards my care."
