July 7th, 2021

Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, an internationally recognized leader in orthopaedic care, this month opened its first, state-of-the art office in Central Florida. Located at 255 N. Lakemont Ave, Suite 207 in Winter Park, Rothman’s team of board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians will treat various routine and complex musculoskeletal issues at this location.

“We’re thrilled about the opening of our first, official location in Winter Park,” said Alexander R. Vaccaro, MD, PhD, MBA, President of Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, Richard H. Rothman Professor and Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedics, and Professor of Neurosurgery at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospitals. “Rothman Orthopaedics’ mindset is to treat patients in and around the communities they live, and our relationship with AdventHealth will help us bolster our world-class service offerings and resources in and around Winter Park.”

“The market demographics and AdventHealth as a health system partner offer a perfect opportunity for the Rothman platform and success,” said Dr. Daryl Osbahr, Managing Director and Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery - Rothman Florida. “We’re excited to continue this expansion while still delivering high quality and in-network care that our patients expect and deserve from Rothman Orthopaedics all under one roof, and is consistent with the Rothman model.”

“Central Floridians of all ages, from teen athletes to seniors, need world-class orthopedic care,” said Randy Haffner, CEO of AdventHealth Central Florida. “In partnership with Rothman, we are pleased to bring that level of consumer-focused care to Winter Park, and we look forward to expanding our network together in the months and years ahead.”

Modeled after Rothman’s offices in Philadelphia, PA, this location, which officially opened July 1, includes eight exam rooms and is located across the street from the AdventHealth Winter Park emergency department. AdventHealth Winter Park was recently named a DNV Center of Excellence for Hip and Knee Replacement. For the convenience of patients, the office has on-site x-ray, casting and bracing as well as physical and hand therapy beginning in the fall. Physicians seeing patients at this office are:
