Joint Replacement in 1, 2, 3

Considering joint replacement surgery? We know it may seem overwhelming. That’s why at Astria Regional Medical Center, we’ve designed our program to put you at ease.

In just three steps, we’ll see you through every phase of care, from pre-op education through your last therapy session. Along the way, you'll have the support of a dedicated care team—including your surgeon, care coordinator, specialized nurses and physical and occupational therapists—committed to helping you get back to your best.

Discovery
When it comes to joint replacement, the more informed you are, the better your experience. A few weeks before your surgery, you’ll attend a class, along with family and friends you’d like to invite. There, you’ll meet members of your care team; receive a comprehensive guidebook covering your procedure, hospital stay and postoperative care; learn how to plan for a smooth transition home; and ask any and all questions to feel confident and prepared.

Surgery
On the big day, your surgeon will make sure you’re comfortable, and review what to expect before, during and immediately after your procedure. At Astria Regional Medical Center, we offer advanced joint replacement solutions, including minimally invasive, robotic technology for partial knee replacement and total hip replacement. Compared to traditional surgery, these techniques often offers less pain, fewer complications, speedier recovery and a more fluid, functional joint.

Recovery
Finally, you’ll spend a few days recovering in your own private room—and your own comfy clothes—on our dedicated orthopedic wellness floor. Everyone’s a little different, but on the first day, your physical and occupational therapist will work to get you up and moving. The next day, you’ll bond with your floormates during group therapy, and enjoy a special lunch with your coach (usually a spouse or friend who lends additional support). The day you leave, we’ll answer any last-minute questions—and send you home ready to rediscover the life you love.

Your Path to Success Starts Here
