Your team will consist of your orthopedic surgeon, orthopedic nurse coordinators, unit nurses, an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist, an on-unit pharmacist, physical therapist, a nutritionist, and a case manager.
Your surgeon performs your joint replacement surgery and will oversee your care.
Orthopedic Nurse Coordinators
Our nurse coordinators act as a link throughout the path of treatment and coordinate your hospital care.
Orthopedic Unit Nurses
Your nurses care for you throughout your stay. Many of our nurses have an extra certification in orthopedics, which means they have specialized training in your recovery process.
Your anesthesiologist works to keep you comfortable and safe during surgery.
Unit-Based Clinical Pharmacist
Our pharmacist works with your surgeon to provide you with pain relief after your surgery. Since they are on the joint replacement floor, they are easily accessible to directly assess your pain levels to keep you comfortable.
Physical Therapy Team
Your physical therapists will take you through your post-operative exercises to improve your range of motion and joint strength.
Our nutritionist can help ensure a healthy diet to facilitate healing.
Our case managers work with you to help with your transition from the hospital to your home.
