Medical Center Hospital’s orthopedic team consists of physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians all dedicated to providing exceptional care to meet the unique needs of each patient. We treat a number of conditions including hip and knee replacements, trauma surgery, back and neck surgery and more.
Medical Center Hospital has received many awards recognizing our outcomes for orthopedic surgery, which are among the top five percent in the country. In fact in 2015 Health Grades awarded Medical Center Hospital the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Orthopedic Surgery Award.
Patients who have elective hip or knee surgery will go through our newly opened Joint Care Center.
MCH Joint Care Center
The Joint Care Center at MCH provides a pre-op teaching class for patients scheduled for elective Hip or Knee replacement surgery. The one hour class is free and helps patients better understand what to expect before, during and after surgery. Pain management and how to care for yourself at home are discussed at length. Past patients have said coming to our class helped to better manage pain and were better prepared to recover faster.
The classed are held on Mondays at 2 PM in the 6 West Therapy room.
