Joint Academy: Prep for Surgery with Confidence
Have an upcoming joint replacement or spinal fusion? Join our orthopedic experts for a unique program that takes the mystery out of your surgery. You’ll meet members of your joint replacement care team, learn what to expect at each step and get the information and tools you need for a smooth and successful recovery.
Better Precision, Less Incision
Whenever possible, our surgeons use some of most minimally invasive techniques available for joint replacement and other procedures. Potential benefits include:
- Less pain
- Reduced tissue healing required
- Reduced risk of dislocation, unequal leg length and other complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Quicker return to the life you love
Sports Medicine Specialists
If an injury has you sidelined or playing in pain, it’s time to team up with our sports medicine experts. We help injured athletes and weekend warriors get back in the game following traumatic fractures or ligament tears, with an approach that focuses on mobility, speeding recovery and preventing re-injury.
Should you need surgery, we perform a variety of advanced techniques, including minimally invasive anatomic ACL reconstruction. This innovative option uses your own quadriceps, patellar or hamstring tendon to create an autograft, while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue to promote a much faster recovery.
Personalized Rehabilitation Programs
Get back to your life following an orthopedic injury, illness or procedure with our inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services. Therapies are tailored to your unique needs, with an overall focus on relieving pain and restoring strength, function and mobility. If you’re hospitalized after joint replacement or another procedure, our physical therapists may have you up and walking the same day as surgery and ready to return home with confidence.
