Importantly, ours is a dedicated unit for joint replacement patients only, staffed by a specialized team that includes board-certified orthopedic surgeons, physician assistants, orthopedics-certified nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and a joint care coordinator.
Our Center of Excellence has 11 private rooms, each with its own bathroom with shower. We also have a spacious, well-appointed dayroom where patients take part in group and individual therapy sessions and education class. We also offer a comprehensive preoperative seminar so you know what to expect before, during and after joint replacement surgery.
Today’s most advanced surgical procedures and technology
We offer a full range of innovative technology and surgical techniques for joint replacement. Among the leading-edge resources we offer are:
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology, which uses a CT scan of the patient’s joint to construct a virtual 3D model which surgeons use to create a personalized surgical plan.
ConforMIS® Knee, which uses a CT scan of the knee to design and create patient-specific, custom implants and instruments
Visionaire® Patient-matched Technology, which uses MRI and X-rays to design and create custom cutting guides matching the patient’s unique anatomy
The latest implant technology, using materials that conserve bone, improve implant stability and longevity, reduce anesthesia time, and speed recovery with less pain
Patient-specific approaches to hip replacement, including the direct anterior (front) approach and direct superior (above) approach surgical techniques which minimize muscle disruption, improving recovery time after surgery
We also use special techniques during surgery to minimize blood loss and complications. As a result, less than 1% of patients experience a complication while in the hospital, a rate that is nearly half of the national average.
The multi-modal latest pain management techniques improve your comfort and safety
Our comprehensive multi-modal approach to pain management helps speed your recovery and mobility without tubes, pumps or heavy reliance on narcotics:
Pre-operative medications address pain and nausea before they occur
Intraoperative injections (given during your procedure) minimize post-operative discomfort
Non-narcotic medications reduce reported pain and use of narcotics by nearly 50% when used after surgery
Nerve blocks offer pain relief by interrupting pain signals along sensory nerves without impairing your ability to walk and move
Cryo/Compression therapy (use of cold and compression) helps manage post-surgical pain and inflammation following knee replacement surgery
Early mobilization helps you recover faster, go home sooner
With pain effectively managed, most of our patients are up and moving within hours of joint replacement surgery. Under the careful guidance of our team of physical and occupational therapists, they participate in an exercise program tailored to their individual needs.
Our patients are able to return home 1-2 days after surgery, a testament to proper pain management and effective post-operative physical and occupational therapy.
Just two days after surgery, 81% of our patients can walk the distance of a football field.
91% of our patients are able begin their recovery at home instead of an extended care facility after surgery.
But don’t just take our word for it
We’re proud that 93% of our patients score us a 9 or 10 out of 10 for satisfaction—a testament to how well they’re treated and how well they do.
