The Joint Restoration Institute's Commitment to Excellence
We are continuously evaluating and measuring our performance to help ensure we provide the highest quality program possible, tailored to each and every patient. Our team meets regularly with a focus on maintaining clinical and service excellence in all aspects of your joint replacement experience.
We know you have a choice of where to go for your procedure. Our goal is to ensure your stay with us is as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We have planned a number of special activities to lift your spirits as you speed your way to a more active lifestyle.
There may come a time when your knee or hip pain reduces the quality of your life. Everyday activities, such as walking, shopping, or housework can become difficult or unbearable, taking part in favorite hobbies such as golf or bowling may be a thing of the past because conservative measures like diet, exercise and medications no longer provide pain relief. If this describes your situation, it may be time to consider joint replacement.
Dedicated Joint Program and Orthopedic Specialists
Within our hospital, we have created a special area just to care for knee and hip replacement patients. No hospital gowns for this crowd – you get to wear your own clothes! And family members are encouraged to participate in group activities, meals and other special events. Exercise and therapy is also provided in a group setting, so that our patients can support and encourage each other on the road to recovery. New friendships are made, enhancing the healing process.
Our staff is hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills, and their desire to provide outstanding service. In addition, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing this important surgery.
