The Regional Leader in Joint Care
Joint pain can drastically affect your lifestyle. All of a sudden, things
that you used to do without a thought are accompanied by pain and you
may even be forced to resort to a more sedentary life than you've
been used to. Joint replacement surgery can help you get back to your
normal lifestyle! In 90-95% of our patients, joint replacement surgery
has significantly reduced pain and restored function to the failing joint.
Our highly trained staff can help you through every step of the process.

ask questions, called the Joint Replacement Preparation Class.

until three months after surgery and beyond.

- A Nurse Clinical Coordinator who coordinates your preoperative education
and care and follows up with you after discharge.
