Thank you for choosing The Joint Institute at Community Medical Center, to help restore you to a higher quality of living with your new prosthetic joint.
Annually, over 700,000 people undergo totally joint replacement surgery. Primary candidates are individuals with chronic joint pain from arthritis that interferes with daily activities, walking, exercise, leisure, recreation, and work. The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore your independence, and return you to work and other daily activities.
Total hip replacement and total knee replacement patients typically recover quickly. Patients will walk and will be in exercise classes beginning the day after surgery. Generally, patients are able to return to driving in 2-4 weeks, dancing in 4-6 weeks and golf in 6-12 weeks.
Community Medical Center has implemented a comprehensive planned course of treatment. We believe that you play a key role in promoting a successful recovery. Our goal is to involve you in your treatment through each step of the program.
Your team includes physicians, nurses, orthopedic technicians, physical and occupational therapist, nursing assistants and other medical personnel specializing in total joint care. Every detail from preoperative exercising, is considered and reviewed with you. Your joint team will plan you individual treatment program and guide you through it.
