Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery

Our Approach

When knee or hip pain is affecting your quality of life, joint replacement surgery may be an option for you. We have a long history of performing successful hip and knee replacements. Our team provides exceptional care and support from the day you decide to schedule surgery all the way through recovery.

Educational resources

Every major surgery has risks, but knee and hip replacements are safer than most. Learn more about your joints and take advantage of these resources to help prevent problems and prepare yourself for surgery and recovery.

Get ready for surgery

There is work to do before you get a surgery date on the calendar. Once you and your surgeon have agreed joint replacement is the best option for you, it’s time to start getting your home, social and medical supports in place. You will want to get scheduled for a joint replacement class, find a coach to be with you during your recovery in the hospital and at your home, and work with your primary care provider to get you as healthy as possible before your surgery. 

Check out these resources, and make sure you get signed up for joint class to learn more.
