Welcome to Florida Musculoskeletal Institute

The caring, board certified and fellowship trained doctors of FMI are dedicated to treating joint, muscle and bone pain anywhere it strikes.

When surgery is warranted, it's good to know that we perform the latest proven procedures such as total joint replacement including the anterior approach hip, joint repair and modification, arthroscopy and many more.

I had my first hip replacement in 2005. I spent a week in the hospital and another week in a rehab facility. When I needed the other hip replaced, I called FMI and met with Dr. Ollivierre. He told me about anterior hip replacement and how it involves a lot less recovery time. After this hip replacement, I was home in four days and bounced back three times faster. Now I can tend to my orchid garden without a walker and without pain. I’m back 100 percent!

Anterior approach is a genuine breakthrough in hip replacement surgery. It requires far less hospital and recovery time. And, like Diane, most people needing hip surgery are eligible.
