Practicing independently allows Dr. Rocha to offer excellent Orthopedic health care without the burden of excessive facility fees that come with employed physicians working for hospitals. Dr. Rocha strives to offer excellent Orthopedic health care to all his patients, whether it be a simple sprain or major injury. He treats patients with acute injuries or helps patients maintain musculoskeletal wellness.

Musculoskeletal injuries are common and can happen even if you exercise regularly. The incidence of these injuries can increase with competitive sports and intense exercise. Two-thirds of sports injuries involve the legs, with the knee being the most commonly injured joint.

Most sports injuries can be cared for with simple measures. Remember the acronym PRICE (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation).

Please refer to the link on how to treat sports injuries published by Harvard Medical School as a guide to help address simple injuries.

If your pain persists despite simple measures, or if you cannot bear any weight on an injured extremity, please call our sports medicine clinic for an appointment and evaluation.

Some injuries result in a bone fracture, which is the breaking of the bone. Fractures are extremely painful and often need to be managed by a professional.

Some fractures require simple immobilization, either splinting or casting. Other fractures require a reduction, which requires the broken pieces to be put back into position and then immobilized with a cast until they are healed.

For more severe fractures, surgery is required to reduce and stabilize the fracture back to the correct anatomic position. The type of treatment widely depends on the severity of the break.

Dr. Rocha has been taking care of patients in the Pensacola area for over 6 years. His expertise extends from simple fractures to complex injuries and nonunions. In the event of an unfortunate injury, let us help you on the road to recovery. Our orthopedic clinic is here for you!


Arthroplasty or joint replacement is a highly effective and reproducible surgery to eliminate joint pain, correct deformity, and improve mobility and function. Arthroplasty is usually the last line of treatment for advanced arthritis when all other conservative treatment options have failed.

Dr. Rocha is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon. Within his practice, he includes arthroplasty, total hips and total knees replacement, shoulder arthroplasty and more. His experience includes not only simple primaries but over the last six years he has been accepting referrals for complex totals, revisions and even infected joints.

Dr. Rocha is an experienced surgeon who has been performing Direct Anterior Hip Arthroplasty for over six years.

This link from the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons provides great information and insight on when it may be time to undergo joint replacement.
