The Orthopedic Clinic was founded in 1961 by Dr. Thurman Gillespy Jr., who was one of the first orthopedic surgeons in the Daytona Beach community. His practice provided much needed orthopedic care that wasn’t previously available, and it quickly grew to a multi-provider practice in East Central Florida.
Dr. Gillespy trained in an orthopedics program in Philadelphia, PA, where he met Dr. Gilbert Martin, Dr. Willis Stose and Dr. Mel Dodd who joined The Orthopedic clinic shortly after its inception. The founding partners believed that orthopedics was about treating the individual patient, not just the illness. They took the patient’s lifestyle and health goals into account before recommending a treatment plan.
Today, we still follow in our founder’s footsteps. Our mission is to provide quality, individualized healthcare to the community — one patient at a time.Explore Our Specialties

Dr. Gaines is an amazing doctor/surgeon. He repaired my 80% torn rotator cuff. The process was painful after the surgery. I did go to PT at the Mason Ave location. I have attended 36 visits to the PT office and assisted in my recovery by a Mr. Keith Short. Without the diligence of Mr. Short and his drive to help me heal successfully I would not be where I am at this point in my recovery. Working with Mr. Short and doing home exercises as prescribed did it. I am near as good as new. Thanks Staff!
