The Total Joint Replacement Program
We understand that joint replacement is a significant decision, which is why our program is based on advanced preparation, education, early mobilization, pain management, experienced nursing care, discharge coordination and after hospital discharge follow-up.
Once you have decided that joint replacement is the right treatment for you, Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center's (PVHMC) multidisciplinary team provides you with compassionate, innovative, expedited, high quality, cost effective care that will get you back to doing what you love, whether it is hiking, walking, dancing, tennis or golfing.
Our program features a special joint replacement class that educates joint replacement candidates on the surgery process,
medications and their side effects, physical therapy, medical equipment, how to prepare yourself for surgery and your home for recovery, and more.
At our joint replacement class, you will meet other joint replacement candidates as well as some members of the joint healthcare team, who, along with your coach (support person) or family members, will all be part of the experience and are a great source of encouragement and motivation.
