A Personalized Approach to Treatment and Recovery
Joint replacement can be life-changing to those suffering with joint pain. Because it is major surgery with a recovery time you will need to plan for, we work with you to provide a personalized and detailed care plan.
Some of the other ways we help make the experience better:
- Full-time nurse and joint coordinator – Before your procedure you will undergo detailed education about what to expect pre- and post-operation, and how to prepare your life for the recovery to come. You will know what to expect before, during and after your surgery, giving you the best chance for success.
- Personal Support Team – Support of family or friends is a critical part of a successful surgical outcome. We encourage your family or friends to be present, and for you to have at least one family member or close friend serve as your “coach” who will be with you on the day of surgery. We even provide overnight accommodations, if needed.
- Rapid recovery – Following joint replacement surgery, our physical therapists work with you to begin your recovery almost immediately, which can speed healing. Using a unique combination of therapies, we incorporate the latest pain control techniques. Most of our patients are up and walking the same day as their surgery, which helps them get home and back to work and other activities more quickly.
- Accessible treatment – Everything you need during treatment is under one roof. Then, physical therapy can occur at convenient location closer to your home. Our knowledgeable staff is always standing by ready to support you, and our surgeons are always available via phone or text and through MyChart.
