St. Mary’s Joint and Spine Institute offers a wellness-oriented program for patients recovering from joint
replacement surgery. Our mission and values are the foundation of the
care we provide, as we focus on delivering the best care possible while
providing a compassionate, relaxed environment for optimal recovery.
What is Total Joint Replacement?
Our Joint Replacement Center has extensive experience with helping patients
return to many daily activities through total joint replacement. Total
joint replacement is the surgical removal of worn surfaces of an arthritic
or injured joint, such as the hip or knee joint, and replacing it with
an artificial joint called a prosthesis. The artificial joint is made
of metal and plastic parts which allow the joint to regain its normal
function. Joint replacement can reduce pain and stiffness, giving patients
greater freedom to move and function.
St. Mary’s Joint Replacement team is made up of specially trained
surgeons, physicians, nurses, occupational and physical therapists who
are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to patients receiving
total joint replacement.
Our orthopedic nurse navigator coordinates the care of all joint replacement
patients during their hospital stay by meeting with physicians and staff
to ensure patients are meeting goals and obtaining quality outcomes. The
orthopedic nurse navigator also empowers patients and families by providing
them with the educational information they need for the quickest recovery
possible. For many patients this results in higher satisfaction, decreased
length of stay and decreased pain level.
