Joint Replacement Program
The pain associated with osteoarthritis deprives thousands of Americans 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.
Bone & Joint Center
The Schneck Bone & Joint Center is a dedicated unit for the care of patients who have undergone joint replacement surgery. Our nursing staff, therapists, and other caregivers are specially trained help manage the particular needs associated with joint replacement surgery.
We offer state-of-the-art care, specialized surgical and nursing teams, patient and family-focused accommodations, streamlined registration, and enhanced pre-op education and post-op follow-up care.
Our goal is to return you to a normal, healthy lifestyle as quickly as possible. Beginning with exercise plans to complete prior to surgery, you will also receive a customized plan after surgery 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.
