Joint Replacement is one of the most common and successful surgeries with over 800,000 performed each year. Most patients can expect reduced or eliminated pain and improved range of motion which enables them to get back to all their favorite activities. Find a joint replacement specialist.
Joint replacement surgery is performed at Patewood Memorial Hospital or Oconee Memorial Hospital. In developing one of the finest joint programs in the region, we strive to combine the latest technology with high standards of patient care and comfort. Once a patient and their doctor determine that joint surgery is the best option, they begin a program to learn about their procedure and how to prepare for surgery as well as what to expect after surgery. It also gives patients a chance to meet the staff, see the facilities and become familiar with the surroundings. This knowledge helps patients feel more at ease and comfortable which can have a positive effect on the healing and rehabilitative process.
