The Center for Joint Health opened in 2016 and is a private 10 bed unit that is specifically designed for patients undergoing total joint replacement. The staff including our joint care coordinator, nurses, therapists and techs are specifically trained and dedicated to caring for joint replacement patients. This unit is separate from all the other areas of the hospital, to minimize risk of infection and allow for an outstanding patient experience.
In addition, all of our patients undergo rigorous preoperative testing, evaluation, and optimization by our medical doctors to ensure they are healthy enough to undergo these procedures and minimizing the risks of adverse events.
Finally, all patients attend a preoperative joint class where we plan and prepare for the days leading up to surgery and the weeks following the operation including your recovery and therapy. We will set up everything at this class so that everything is arranged prior to your day of surgery.
