Taking an innovative and more effective approach to joint replacement recovery, the Saint Elizabeth Regional Medical Center Joint Center staff helps patients heal faster and return home sooner. The Joint Center offers a unique in-patient recovery program starting even before surgery with focused education and exercise.
At the Joint Center, patients wear their own comfortable clothes and go through their education, surgery and recovery together in a group atmosphere. The Joint Center multidisciplinary staff includes a clinical nurse educator, Joint Center coordinator including several orthopaedic certified nurses and physical and occupational therapists all dedicated to helping patients regain mobility and independence.
The Joint Center holds free knee and hip seminars which address the causes of knee and hip pain and the latest treatments. Visit the Saint Elizabeth Events Programs and Events calendar for dates and times or call TLC at 402-219-7000 for more information.
