We are committed to helping others

Through medical mission work and other outreach initiatives, engaging communities and other healthcare practitioners are a top priority at North Florida Bone & Joint Specialists.

Medical Mission Trips

Currently, North Florida Bone & Joint's Dr. Steven Kronlage and Dr. Chris O'Grady work with Bayside Medical Missions to provide surgical care to the underserved community in Ecuador. They also donate their services to those who travel from abroad seeking specialized care.

Through their collaborative work with other surgeons and healthcare professionals from around the country, they perform life-changing procedures on those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to receive the care they need. Dr. Kronlage has also been involved with the Love for Peru Foundation where he has performed similar operations on children and adults from remote locations in the region.

At the beginning of 2022, Drs. Kronlage and O’Grady started Hands of Hope Medical Missions, a non-profit organization they plan to use to further their mission service.

Community Outreach

You will often spot many of our North Florida Bone & Joint Specialists physicians at local high school athletic events and the University of West Florida, providing their services from the sidelines.

Our physicians also lend their time and talents as volunteers at various other sports and community events, providing physicals or other consulting services. Many of our providers have also served as team physicians for other semi-professional and professional athletic organizations locally and nationwide.

Currently, Drs. Josh Hackel and Roger Ostrander serve as part of the medical team for the University of West Florida football program. Dr. Hackel is also the medical director for the America's Cup American Magic Sailing Team, and Dr. Ostrander is the medical director and team physician for the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.
