Team approach

Your joint care team includes your surgeon, physicians’ assistants, patient care technicians, nurses and physical therapists – all specializing in joint care.  Every detail of your care, from before you are admitted until your rehabilitation is complete, is considered and reviewed with you by this team. Your Joint Care Coordinator will plan and personalize your treatment program while acting as your advocate throughout the process.

Each step of our program is designed to encourage the best results leading to a discharge from the hospital within 1-3 days of surgery.

Our program features:

  • Dedicated joint care nurses and therapists
  • Casual clothes (no drafty gowns)
  • Private rooms
  • Family and friends participate in recovery process as “coaches”
  • Patient guidebook detailing preparation before surgery all the way through your recovery and rehabilitation after surgery
