What do the following have in common? Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Harvard, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pittsburgh Pirates, U.S. Soccer Team, Women's Olympic Soccer Team and IMG Academies/Bollettieri . . . The answer is Coastal Orthopedics & Pain Management.

Coastal Orthopedics & Pain Management (Coastal) spent the last 32 years building a team of unparalleled physicians and surgeons for the betterment of Manatee County and the surrounding area. Below is a short list of the accomplishments.

Patient Recognized: Approximately 95% of the patients surveyed in 2008 scored Coastal in the exceptional category for quality of care and kindness. Coastal addresses patients' individual needs allowing them to return to health quickly and with the least amount of down time.

Physician Recognized: The majority of physicians in Manatee County send their patients, their own family members, and themselves to Coastal for their Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, Pain Management, and Rehabilitation needs.

Subspecialty Training: Each of Coastal's physicians subspecialize, therefore, they have more experience and training than any other surgeon in the area to address your exact needs. Do you trust your transmission to a general mechanic? Then you shouldn't trust your body to anyone but a subspecialist.

Technology: Coastal surgeons have routinely brought the newest technologies and treatments to Manatee County. Many Coastal surgeons in fact teach nationally and internationally helping other Orthopedic Surgeons and Pain Management physicians improve their care.

Research: Medical Schools, Pharmaceutical companies, and Medical Technology companies from around the world request Coastal surgeons to review and improve their conceptual pharmaceuticals and technology. These improvements occur far before other surgeons are even aware of these medical advancements, so Coastal remains 5-10 years ahead of the newest techniques than others in their field.

Coastal amassed 17 of the highest trained surgeons in the United States. Coastal physicians cumulatively completed more sub-specialized training than any practice of its kind between Tampa and Miami. Many physicians reference Board Certification as a key indicator of competency. A more important indicator of excellence is the highest training in medicine called a Fellowship and/or documentation of outstanding surgical outcomes on complicated cases. Every Coastal physician has these higher standards of excellence that far exceed just Board Certification.Coastal has created and maintained core values for over 32 years. They include patient-centered, world-class care, maintaining integrity and accountability, and integration of the practice with the community. With those values in mind, Coastal gives you The expertise you expect, the compassion you deserve.
