Total Joint Replacement

Great advancements have been made in orthopedic research and clinical outcomes. People with chronic knee, hip, or shoulder pain have the option of replacing painful joints with artificial joint implants. With the reduction or alleviation of the pain, patients return to their optimal functioning potential.

The St. Mary's Total Joint Program offers pre- and post-surgical services designed to create a seamless patient experience.

Pre-surgical educational classes are held at St. Mary's Life Center.

Classes are led by physical therapists, nurses, occupational therapists, and a case manager and include:

  • What to expect during the hospital stay through recovery,
  • Baseline assessments including walking ability and strength, and 
  • Diagrammed  instruction for pre and post-surgical exercises.

Following joint replacement surgery, patients work with a physical therapist when referred by the physician. Post-surgical intervention includes assessment of the patient's current status, review and progression of home exercises, and general movement activities.

St. Mary's Total Joint Replacement Program includes an expert staff, state-of-the-art facilities and technology, and advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques. The comprehensive program gives patients the information and confidence they need to return to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
