Holy Cross Hospital attributes its continuous national accolades to the commitment of its medical team to master leading-edge technology. The Holy Cross Hospital orthopedic team was the first in the world to use MAKOplasty® for partial knee resurfacing and more recently the first to use MAKOplasty® in South Florida for total hip replacement. Pioneers in the use of Ortho Sensor and Tenex Health's percutaneous tenotomy technology, Holy Cross Hospital also was first to have a shoulder/elbow fellowship, illustrating its strong commitment to education with the only South Florida member of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons. Holy Cross surgeons serve on design teams for the latest knee and shoulder implants, again solidifying our commitment to innovation. We were also the first in the nation to utilize Match PointTM in reverse shoulder replacement surgery, for a more precise implantation and faster recovery (watch video to learn more about Match PointTM). Our Orthopedic Research Institute is committed to finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat orthopedic conditions. Learn more about our current orthopedic clinical trials.

Well-versed in the latest technologies and biomaterials utilized in joint replacement surgery, we are proud that we are the one of the largest joint replacement providers in Florida.

If an orthopedic problem is related to other conditions, such as osteoporosis or rheumatoid arthritis, we provide a full range of services and utilize a teamwork approach insuring that other specialists are called in to meet patient needs. This tradition of teamwork is one reason that the Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute has a reputation for quality care, and diagnostic and surgical excellence.

Our entire staff is prepared to meet challenges with a sincere focus on personal commitment and compassionate care. Services include occupational and physical rehabilitation, home health care, pain management, patient/family education and support groups.
