Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic (TOC) recently announced that Adam Almaguer, MD, has joined its team of providers. Dr. Almaguer is an orthopedic surgeon specializing in knee, hip, and joint replacement. He will be serving patients in TOC’s Capital Medical Clinic. Dr. Almaguer will treat patients with ailments affecting muscles, bones, and joints, focusing on hip preservation and replacement.
Dr. Almaguer is a native of Florida, growing up in Miami and Tallahassee. He graduated with honors from Florida State University with a BS in Biology. After earning his medical degree at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine, he completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at the University of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham. Dr. Almaguer received his Fellowship training at the Orthopedic Centers of Colorado, focusing on adult reconstruction and hip preservation.
He specializes in preserving, investigating, and restoring function for hips and musculoskeletal problems. He performs hip replacements through various approaches tailored to each patient’s needs. This includes the minimally invasive, muscle-sparing direct anterior approach and bikini incision. He performs total and partial knee replacements using kinematic alignment. This advanced technique involves using robotics, or patient-specific 3-D printed models and guides, allowing for a customized joint replacement specific to each patient’s unique anatomy.
“TOC is excited to welcome Dr. Almaguer to our team. Dr. Almaguer’s specialization in hip preservation continues TOC’s expansion of our comprehensive centers of excellence through the offering of innovative orthopedic treatment and procedures,” said Mike Boblitz, TOC CEO, “Employers, payers, and especially patients have a desire to access industry-leading joint replacement and preservation care in an outpatient setting where the patient can return home in a matter of hours. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Almaguer to fulfill this need and help reduce the overall cost of care.”
“My wife, Lexi, and I are excited to be back near our family in Tallahassee where we can raise our children,” said Dr. Almaguer, “The high quality of specialty care provided, along with the top-notch facilities and access to robotic surgical technologies was an obvious draw to TOC. What impressed me the most, however, was the family culture of the practice. I am blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of the TOC team and serve the Tallahassee community.”
Dr. Almaguer will begin seeing patients on Thursday, September 1, 2022, at TOC’s Capital Medical Clinic, located at 3334 Capital Medical Boulevard, Tallahassee, FL, 32308. To book an appointment online or for more information, please visit www.TeamTOC.com or call (850) 877-8174.
