Our Mission Statement and History
Founded in 1978, 360 Orthopedics began as Sarasota Orthopedic Associates. In 2003, after having outgrown our original Hawthorne Street location, we renovated and relocated to our current office in the former Doctors Hospital building on Bahia Vista Street. We offer a full range of orthopedic services from head to toe, including imaging and other ancillary services, physical therapy, and aquatic therapy in a full-sized pool. While our Sarasota location is currently our largest, we also established two more offices in Lakewood Ranch and Venice to accommodate patients in outlying areas. As our growth continues, we’re grateful for the opportunity to add extensive services, highly trained physicians, and state-of-the-art technology to our practice to better serve our patients.
After 40 years as Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, we realized that our name did not thoroughly reflect our growing mission and implied boundaries to our services. In the summer of 2019, we announced our new name, 360 Orthopedics. We feel that our new name embodies our larger vision for the future, more accurately represents that our patients are at the center of our care, and makes evident that we serve a much larger area on the Florida Suncoast. While our name has changed, we continue to provide the exceptional standard of comprehensive, compassionate, and professional care that has contributed to our growth over the years.
Our mission remains the same: to get our patients back on their feet, back to work, back in the game, and back to life.
