The specialized orthopedic team of the Advanced Joint Replacement Center focus on your health and surgical recovery through collaborative care.
In addition to the orthopedic surgeon and anesthesiologist, your care team consists of nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and case management. The process begins with a comprehensive patient education class a few weeks prior to your surgery. You will receive detailed information about preparing for surgery, your inpatient recovery, and the weeks beyond your discharge. During your inpatient stay, you will receive the skills needed to make a safe transition to your home environment and our team will coordinate your discharge services and home equipment. Through the team approach, you are encouraged to succeed and you will never feel alone in your recovery. Patients are empowered to take control of the recovery process through informed decision making and education. The combined efforts lead to increased physical therapy compliance, greater mobility and pain control as well as decrease length of stay.
