Through their passion for continually improving “the process” and delivery of orthopedic care, and the hard lessons learned from navigating the pandemic, the UNOVA Hip & Knee Center has evolved from an inpatient surgery-focused clinic to an outpatient focused clinic, providing outpatient kinematic alignment total knee, high-performance partial knee, and direct anterior hip replacements to the community.
Drs. McCoy and Kerina’s goal is to understand each patient’s unique surgical expectations and meet those by determining the proper procedure, maximizing the return of function, and shortening the recovery time.
“We are entrusted to care for a very special population here in Central Florida, our seniors over the age of sixty-five. It is imperative that we ensure our patients’ safety, while delivering the best possible outcomes for their health and quality of life,” stated Dr. Kerina. “Remembering that the vast majority of our seniors have chosen to be here because they want to continue to be involved in an active lifestyle, is why we utilize kinematic alignment total knee, high-performance partial knee, and direct anterior hip replacements. These procedures have a long, proven history of rapid recovery and increased functional return.”
