Joint replacement

Our high volume of joint replacement surgery – total knee, ankle, hip and shoulder – means better results for you. Every year, we perform more than a thousand joint replacements. Our experience leads to excellent outcomes, fewer complications and a quicker return home.

Joint replacement starts with pre-op classes, known as joint camp. These free classes, offered every week, will help you and a caregiver learn:

  • Safe exercises you can do before surgery
  • What to expect when you’re in the hospital
  • How to prepare your home
  • Where to borrow or purchase equipment and supplies

Because of our proactive approach, most patients return home after two days in the hospital.

Rehabilitation starts before you’re admitted with “prehabilitation” therapies and continues after discharge at our Health and Healing Center. Following surgery, rehabilitation begins at your bedside and moves to our inpatient gym, a specially equipped space for orthopedic patients. Our caring physical and occupational therapists work with you in a supportive atmosphere to regain skills, strength and mobility.
