The Center for Total Joint Care at Sky Lakes Medical Center brings a comprehensive, more streamlined approach to joint replacement. Our approach focuses on team-oriented care, new surgical technologies and patient education to improve the outcome of joint-replacement surgery and accelerate your rehabilitation.
As a patient, you are the focal member of a care team that includes your surgeon, nursing staff and physical therapists, all dedicated to successfully restoring your mobility and function through a multifaceted, coordinated effort.
The care team works closely with patients, keeping them involved in the process and educating them on what they can expect before, during and after surgery. This approach gives patient’s confidence in the care team, in the procedure and in their recovery. And that produces good and more consistent outcomes, and often, shorter hospital stays.
