Total Joint Replacement
Joint replacement is a surgical procedure to remove an arthritic or damaged joint and replace it with an artificial joint. The surgery is considered only after other treatment options have failed to provide adequate relief from pain and/or disability. Total knee replacement has been, and continues to be, one of the most successful operations in the history of orthopedic surgery, relieving pain and increasing the ability of the patient to participate in more normal activities of daily living.
Our joint replacement program offers a continuum of musculoskeletal care within a highly integrated health care system. Our skilled orthopaedic surgeons bring the highest level of credentials, specialty training and experience to deliver specialized care to every patient for a return to normal functioning as quickly and safely as possible. Our advanced techniques enhance our clinical team’s ability to maximize the clinical outcomes of our patients. Our full comprehensive team includes your surgeon, physicians, a nurse practitioner, registered nurses, physical therapists, social workers, a care coordinator (discharge planner), clinical assistants and YOU! Communication is key and we encourage you to help us by voicing your needs. Each member is essential to your care and committed to helping you achieve your optimum physical state.
Total Joint Replacement Preparatory Class
All of our patients will be properly prepared to undergo a total joint replacement procedure by attending our preparation class. Speakers from the Orthopaedic Nursing Unit, Anticoagulation Services, Physical Therapy, & Northwell Health Home Care will provide all the information necessary to be sufficiently prepared before, during, after your total joint replacement procedure. You are invited to bring someone to the class with you. This class is also a great opportunity to answer any questions you may have.
