Joint Replacement

The Joint Replacement Center provides all the resources you need, including a comfortable and spacious private room setting. From pre-operative education, to comprehensive rehabilitation, to the support we provide once you’re home, we’ve thought through every step of your experience to ensure it’s the best possible.

Starting with your pre-education class and tour, then on to your joint camp experience, and all the way through Allegiance Rehabilitation services, we are ready to provide a consistent continuum of care designed to help you enjoy life with less pain and better mobility.

If you have questions about whether or not you should undergo joint replacement surgery, we encourage you to talk with your physician about treatment options.

Pre-Operative Education

Prior to your surgery, you and a support person will be invited to attend a class at the Joint Replacement Center, located on the 5th Floor of the hospital.
 This class will give you an overview of the Joint Replacement Center program.

Comprehensive Rehabilitation Program

The rehabilitation program is designed to help
you accomplish your goals through every stage of your recovery. Your therapy will begin on the day of surgery, starting with helping you get up and out of bed.

You will be scheduled for four therapy sessions each day, including individual and group exercises based on your ability to participate. Group therapy has proven to be helpful in providing support and encouragement.

You will also be invited to have your celebration meal in the Center’s activity room with your support person and other patients. Sharing your experience with others can help build motivation and aid in the healing process.

Support When You Get Home

After you leave the Joint Replacement Center, we will continue to help you throughout your recovery. We will provide exercises for you to do at home, and we will schedule a home visit for you with a health professional. You may also schedule appointments with Allegiance Physical Rehabilitation, if needed. All of these services focus on helping you increase your strength, flexibility and range of motion.

Exercise can help prevent future back pain by improving your posture, strengthening your back and improving flexibility.
