Please watch this informational video on the reasons why Shoulder Pain Can’t Wait. The Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute has identified several reasons why you should not wait to see the doctor if you have persistent shoulder pain. Waiting may make your shoulder conditions worse. JOI has several options for you to be evaluated in person or by telemedicine.
Conservative Shoulder Care
The Orthopedic Shoulder Specialists at JOI, work closely with the clinicians of JOI Rehab to develop conservative treatment programs for the shoulder. The specially trained therapists use various treatment features like laser and The Graston Technique to get you back on the road to recovery. JOI Rehab can accept prescriptions for physical therapy from any doctor, not just JOI Physicians. JOI Rehab has clinicians who are trained to get you back to your sport, to work or to any activities that you love.
Advanced Surgical Care
If the conservative approach to your care is not successful, the physicians of JOI have advanced innovative surgical techniques to improve the function of your shoulder. JOI has 5 convenient physician locations throughout NorthEast Florida. The locations are: San Marco, Beaches, Baptist South, Nassau and Fleming Island. If you outcome matters to you, choose one of our many orthopedic shoulder specialists. You can even make an appointment online or call 904-JOI-2000.
There really is no reason to wait to see a doctor if your shoulder is hurting. JOI…. Where The Pro’s go and you can too!

Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute and Centinel Spine Technology provide a minimally invasive device to improve quality of life for spine surgery patients. Upholding a commitment to provide comprehensive, surgical care for muscle, bone, and joint issues, JOI is working with Centinel Spine to adopt a surgical technology capable of restoring individuals who suffer from chronic lower back pain to their highest possible level of fitness and function. Centinel Spine technology made headlines when pro-golfer Tiger Woods opted to use it for his back surgery.
Orthopedic spine surgeons from Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute (JOI) throughout Northeast Florida use a stand-alone device, called a STALIF®, to stabilize the spinal column while the bone heals following a lumbar fusion surgery. The device is installed through a small abdominal incision, and may dramatically enhance recovery and reduce blood loss compared to typical spinal surgeries.
This device requires the collaborative effort of two surgeons to successfully install; one to perform the surgical approach and the other to implant the device. The increased physician presence in the operating room helps ensure the safety of the procedure and also allows for a minimally invasive approach from the front or side of the body.
“This device has been proven effective over years of trial and research,” said Todd Green, Centinel Spine marketing director. “Patients are overjoyed to find out they can perform tasks they never dreamed they’d be able to do after surgery, even something that was previously impossible for these patients, like bending over to pick up cans at the grocery store.” Gregory Keller, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute, performs lumbar spinal fusions using this technology platform. Orthopedic surgeons Sunday Ero, MD, James Perry, DO, and Brandon Kambach, MD also incorporate the device system in their spinal surgeries.
“I use STALIF because it works. In my professional opinion, we are using the best spinal surgery technology has to offer,” Dr. Keller said. “Less can sometimes mean more; this device requires a small incision, and may lead to less blood loss, less tissue damage, less pain, and a quicker recovery time. Through the many surgeries I’ve performed, I have seen it alleviate almost all of my patients’ symptoms.”

The Jacksonville Jaguars got off to a good start to the 2020 Football Season with a 27-20 win. This home opener win against the Indianapolis Colts was a great way to open the season. The Jaguars came back from behind to score 10 points in the fourth quarter. With all of the adversity related to Covid 19 and limited fans in the stands, the fans who did attend the game had a great time.
Minshew Mania 2.0 was off to a good start as he threw for 3 touchdown passes in the game. The Jaguars are a very young team but they certainly were fun to watch. Congratulations to the Jaguar Coaches, Administration, Certified Athletics Trainers/Physical Therapists and Team Physicians. The Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute is the official Sports Medicine Provider for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

All of the 12 JOI Rehab Centers have now implemented the Virtual Waiting Room. This allows patients who have a registered cell phone number with JOI to utilize the Virtual Waiting Room in the convenience of their own car. The Virtual Waiting Room works like this:
-The patient will receive a text message one hour before their appointment time. In this text message will be a link to pay your copay or deductible amount. By paying online, it will reduce the amount of time spent in the waiting room or at the front desk.
-When you arrive at the JOI Rehab Center, simply respond with a “HERE” message.
-Our front desk will message you back when it is time to come in for your appointment with your therapist. Just come into the clinic and sign in and go straight back for your therapy!
Its fast, easy and safe!

Today is a new beginning for our JOI family. Over the last several months, we were forced to face challenges which we could never have imagined. We worked together as a team to come up with safe and creative ways to continue to provide care to our community with Telemedicine, online patient forms and new safety procedures. Normally, some of these programs would have taken months to implement but as a team we were able to do them within days. I truly want to thank the entire JOI management team and practice managers for the last 8 weeks of dealing with all the new challenges that we faced as a company. Thank you to all of JOI’s practice managers and rehab site coordinators for keeping each of their offices open during this time period.
A sincere thank you to all of our JOI employees, including our providers, clinicians and our valued employees in rehabilitation, call center, information technology, business office, coding, accounting, finance, administration, marketing, human resources, and divisional staff.
