Joint Replacement Program

Our three decades of experience with joint replacement procedures and the expertise of the orthopaedic surgeons make Columbia St. Mary's a leader in joint replacement surgery.

Our team of knowledgeable orthopaedic nurses and therapists work closely with the physicians to promote a successful joint replacement experience. In preparation for what to expect during the hospital stay, an educational session led by a nurse and a therapist is offered prior to admission. For those persons needing a longer recovery time, or specialized services or equipment after they leave the hospital, our case managers will provide advice and assistance in coordinating discharge needs.

The number of joint replacement surgeries performed at Columbia St. Mary's make it one of the leading programs of this kind in the state. Our experience, innovation and state-of-the-art technology promote excellence in patient care and outcomes.
