Doctors Community Hospital offers a comprehensive program for those patients in need of orthopedic services from traditional orthopedic surgery to repair a joint to more intricate joint replacement surgery.
If you and your physician have decided that joint replacement is your best option, you owe it to yourself to obtain the best care possible. Our staff includes the top orthopedic surgeons in the region specializing in joint replacement.
When you choose Doctors Community Hospital for your joint replacement surgery, our Orthopedic Specialist will sit down with you and your family members to discuss the surgery and recovery process. We want you to know who will care for you, from the anesthesiologist and nurses to the Home Health staff.
Our joint replacement patients have a personal nurse advocate from the time their surgery is scheduled through complete recovery. Our Orthopedic Nurse Specialist provides in-depth, pre-operative instruction, including information on the surgical procedure, hospital stay and plans for rehabilitation. Before your surgery, position precautions and specific exercises are taught to achieve the best possible outcome from surgery.
While in the hospital, patients are assigned to our orthopedic unit where specially trained nurses and technicians provide quality care. Patients receive thorough physical and occupational therapy to help them regain their independence quickly.
Our dedicated physical therapists have designed a program specifically for joint replacement patients. This program helps speed the recovery process and ensures that ease of movement is regained as soon as possible.
