Do You Suffer From Knee or Hip Pain? We Can Help.  

Meet Our Team

Nursing and Support Staff

You will meet nurses, care partners, technicians and other support staff members in every phase of your care. From pre-admission testing, same-day surgery, operating room, recovery room and the orthopedic unit, the staff is here to ensure you receive excellent care. Our Total Joint Coordinator will stay in contact with you throughout your total joint experience.

Anesthesia and Pain Control

Prior to your surgery, you will meet with your anesthesiologist to review your medical history and plan the most appropriate anesthetic to meet your individual needs. Please make sure to tell them of any anesthesia experiences you've had in the past.

The anesthesia used can be any of the following:

  • Spinal
  • Regional nerve block
  • Epidural
  • General
  • A combination of any of the above

Spinal and regional nerve blocks are the most common types of anesthesia, and the gold standard. No matter what type of anesthesia you have, be assured you will not feel the surgery. Your anesthesiologist will formulate the best and most appropriate medication regimen to control your pain. Your comfort is our top priority, and your anesthesiologist will assess your pain and side effects and adjust your therapy accordingly.

Physical and Occupational Therapy

Our Physical and Occupational Therapy Team will help you with an exercise program, before and after surgery. You will be given exercises to do before surgery.  After surgery, the therapist will see you every day in the hospital, supervising your walking and reinforcing your exercises. Upon discharge, most patients will have physical and occupational therapy in the comfort of their home or on few occasions, in a rehabilitation facility.


You may work with our Radiology Team to have x-rays taken of the joint area before surgery. This does not happen in all cases. 

Case Management

Case Management will work with you on the discharge plan throughout your hospital stay. Home care with a registered nurse and physical therapy can also be planned as per your insurance benefits. The majority of patients are discharged home with outpatient services which our Case Management team can arrange.
