Joint Replacement Program:

In January, 2019, Deaconess Henderson Hospital and Orthopaedic Associates will formally begin a Joint Replacement Program that will offer patients the latest advances in knee and hip replacement surgery. The Program has been designed to fully support patients through every step of their journey. From initial consultation through surgery, rehabilitation and recovery, our team is focused on helping patients recover completely so they can quickly get back to living their best possible life.

Our team carefully analyzes each patient — their needs, goals and level of activity — as we approach each joint replacement with a customized plan of care. This personalized approach, along with our reputation of expertise and successful outcomes, places us among the leading total joint replacement programs in the region.

We go to great lengths to deliver the ideal experience for every patient, offering a higher level of care that includes:

• Joint program coordinator — our designated coordinator will guide you through the entire process to ensure you understand the details of your surgery and recovery.

• Pre-operative class — this personalized class will include all members of your care team, designed to help patients prepare for surgery and recovery.

• Streamlined pre-operative testing and pre-registration

• Private rooms, all located on our new, fully-designated Joint Replacement Unit

• Amenities, including room service, free Wi-Fi, daily group therapy sessions and post-op luncheons with staff

For more information on the Joint Replacement Program, download the brochure.
