Bone & Joint Center

The starting place for your care is Schneck Bone & Joint Center

The pain associated with osteoarthritis has deprived many people of their normal activities of daily living. Simple pleasures like walking, shopping, and participating in favorite pastimes, become more difficult or impossible. Diet, exercise, and medications under a physician's care may help alleviate the symptoms of osteoarthritis. When they do not, surgery may be an option.

Total Joint Replacement Program

Schneck is dedicated a special unit to the care of patients who have undergone total joint replacement surgery. The nursing staff, therapists, and other caregivers on this unit are specially trained help manage the particular issues associated with joint replacement surgery.

While in the hospital, you will stay in this specialized unit along with other patients and families undergoing the same procedure. You will enjoy both individual and group activities and other social interaction. You will attend Group Exercise Class with your new friends in the Bone & Joint Center.

Our goal is to return you to a normal, healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible. You will receive a customized plan to regain strength, mobility, and a better quality of life. No one wants to be in the hospital, but our wish is to make your hospital visit as pleasant as possible.
