The Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute located in West Palm Beach is an internationally renowned orthopedic center of excellence treating children and adults with complex orthopedic conditions. Current conditions treated include pediatric and adult orthopedic and soft tissue deformity, general pediatric and general orthopedics, orthopedic oncology, foot and ankle reconstruction and preservation, and total joint arthroplasty with 6 attending orthopedic surgeons. Our staff is augmented with both national and international fellows as well.
Patients travel from all over the world and the United States to be treated by us and to receive therapy at our specialized physical therapy department. The institute has its own on-site rehabilitation department, which works closely with the outpatient clinic and surgical staff in order to provide comprehensive, specialized treatment strategies for our patients. The Paley Institute is on the campus of St. Mary's Medical Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Our own surgical center exists in the same building as our clinic; surgical cases per year average 700+.
Under the direction of a licensed physician(s), the PA provides and/or augments physicianï¿½s ability to provide medical services to patient using approved patient care protocols; surgical first assisting in all specialties, multiple-layered closures, limited hardware removal under direct supervision, clinic responsibilities usually twice weekly, first call responsibilities for practice patients only (no ER call). Full time mid-level floor staff account for nearly all inpatient day-to-day coverage; weekend call encompasses inpatient rounding. Inter-disciplinary rounds occur each week, and are a constant available source of Category II CMEï¿½s.
This is a unique and diverse practice, one that sees and successfully treats conditions not readily described throughout the world. In essence we are a ï¿½tertiary referral centerï¿½ for orthopedic deformities.
