Dr. Stephen Reed excelled in science. The exposure he received as a young boy through the Boy Scout Medical Explorers program inspired him to become a doctor. He was intrigued by the “hands on” orthopaedic specialty, where the results are quickly seen and easily measured.

A boardcertified physician, Dr. Reed also enjoys the relationships he builds with his patients. The rewards of his career are being able to see patients resume activities without pain and know that he played a part in that process.

The Central Florida area is a perfect place for Stephen Reed to follow his commitment to people. He loves to practice in hospitals that are large enough to provide the services needed, but small enough to know the staff that cares for his patients. He also likes to work with hospital personnel in developing systems and procedures for the improvement of patient outcomes.

Dr. Reed recently performed North Orlando’s first total knee replacement surgery with Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA knee robot – first in Seminole, Orange, Lake and Volusia counties. He is one of the select few Volusia and Seminole County surgeons with the honor of being inducted into the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. He is also the Past President of Seminole County Medical Society and served as the Past Chief of Staff and 2016 Chairman of the Board of Trustees for Central Florida Regional Hospital.
