A facility known for treatment of athletes here in Columbus has now branched out to another location in Florida.

The Hughston Clinic is a nationally known orthopedic group that has been recognized both nationally and internationally as a center of excellence for research. 

The facility, which will be located in Fleming Island, will specialize in total joint replacements for the hip, knee, and shoulder, among other things. 

Hughston Clinic CEO Mark Baker says this expansion will help bring more national attention to the type of medical care the company provides. 

"The benefit for us is to bring high quality orthopedics at a very cost effective rate to communities outside of Columbus,” Baker said. “To grow a more regional and national presence."       

Doctors will start seeing patients at the Fleming Island facility on April 1. 

This is the fourth location to open in Florida.
