A skilled and experienced multidisciplinary team specializing in joint replacement provides the highest level of expertise.
All patients attend a comprehensive 90-minute orientation prior to surgery. Each patient is encouraged to bring a support person, or "coach". Knowing what to expect in advance prevents anxiety, and preparation speeds recovery.
Patients in the joint replacement program have a built-in support system, and experience the camaraderie of a “group experience”. Studies show that patients who recover as a team reach their goals faster and with fewer complications.
The rehabilitation process begins in the hospital as soon as the day of surgery. Under supervision of their surgeon, patients begin working with physical and occupational therapists to gain strength and flexibility while getting used to their new joint.
