When you have joint replacement surgery, a team of providers consisting of orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and professional nursing staff will support you from your first appointment through recovery. You’ll benefit from having:
Comprehensive education for you and your caregiver
Family coaching tools
Ongoing communication with you and the care team after you’re discharged from the hospital
Group therapy and meals
By taking advantage of positive group dynamics, you’ll feel accountable to yourself as well as the others in your group. Drawing strength from the group environment provides an improved response to treatment with faster recovery times.
Watch Kariline Bringe, M.D., and Nathan Johnson, D.O., discuss joint replacement surgery, options for treatment, and how new innovations have made recovery easier and less painful, leading to life-changing reduction in chronic pain for many.
