The Decision

There may come a time when knee, hip or shoulder pain may reduce the quality of your life. Everyday activities such as walking, shopping, or housework can become difficult or unbearable. Taking part in favorite hobbies such as golf or bowling may be a thing of the past as conservative measures like diet, exercise, physical therapy and medications no longer provide relief or alleviate your pain. If this is you, it may be time to consider joint replacement.

Our Comprehensive Approach

We have created a special program that brings together a team of experienced and expert surgeons with caring and specially trained nurses, therapists and technicians. Our goal here is to provide seamless, coordinated care, and get you back to your favorite activities as soon as possible.

Dedicated Place, Dedicated People

Within our hospital, we have created a special area just for the care of our joint replacement patients. No hospital gowns for this crowd — you get to wear your own clothes after surgery! Our specially trained therapists work closely with the nurses and surgeons to get you up and about as soon as possible. Family members are encouraged to participate with you in the recovery process by learning about special exercises, medications and follow-up care, helping to make the transition home a smooth one. Some exercise and therapy may be provided in a group setting, so that our patients can support and encourage each other on the road to recovery. New friendships are made enhancing the healing process.

Our staff has been hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills and their desire to provide outstanding service. In addition, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing knee, hip or shoulder replacement.

Superior Education

We believe the key to better outcomes is a commitment to superior education for you and your family. Knowing what to expect each step of the way goes a long way to reducing stress and anxiety and preparing you for as smooth a recovery as possible.

Our comprehensive approach includes:

  • Engaging community outreach seminars
  • An informative pre-operative class for patients and family
  • A Patient Guidebook
  • Daily newsletters while in the hospital
  • Interactive joint models to elarn about your joint problem

Our Commitment to Excellence

We are committed to providing the highest quality care to our patients. Our focus on customer service and safety enables patients to easily navigate the surgical experience and take steps toward reclaiming their active lifestyle. Our team approach includes the patient, patient’s coach, staff, leadership and surgeons to maximize each patient’s experience towards an excellent outcome.
