The AHOIO team of experienced orthopedic surgeons and related professionals treat more than 4,000 orthopedic patients per year. This case volume includes both routine and the most complex orthopedic surgical cases.
Due to the location of the Orthopedic Research Department on the AdventHealth campus, there is access to state-of-the-art imaging, laboratory and specialty services. AdventHealth also provides a dedicated research pharmacy, which has a variety of multi-temperature, monitored refrigerators and freezers.
Dr. Cole’s clinical practice is also located on campus in the AdventHealth Medical Plaza, which provides access to a high volume of potential study subjects and registry data collection opportunities.
Dr. Cole’s pioneering use of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) has provided true innovations in the field of orthopedic traumatology. His belief has always been that this approach is more beneficial to the patient.
