JointWorks: a comprehensive continuum of care.

We are constantly looking for new and better ways to serve our patients. That’s why we offer JointWorks – a unique program for hip and knee replacement that guides patients from initial consult through surgery and recovery. The entire JointWorks program is designed to help prevent complications and optimize surgical outcomes, and has been an extraordinary addition for our patients since its inception.

an orthopaedic physician.

Patients who attend pre-operative education like JointWorks are less likely to have complications of:

  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Emergency room visits after surgery
  • Readmissions after surgery

JointWorks classes are held every Monday-Friday from 8:30-11:00 a.m.

Attend the JointWorks Education Class where you can:

  • Learn how to prepare for your surgery.
  • Discuss your plan of care while in the hospital.
  • Find out what to expect as you recover at home after your surgery.

In JointWorks classes prior to surgery, you will meet with members of our acute care team – including physical therapists, staff nurses and an orthopaedic nurse navigator – who will help you throughout the process. This team will provide detailed information about what to expect before, during and after surgery as you continue your recovery at home. Our team will also give you valuable information to prepare you for each phase of care.
