Joint Replacement Center
There may come a time when knee or hip pain may reduce the quality of your life. Everyday activities such as walking, shopping, or housework can become difficult or unbearable. Taking part in favorite hobbies such as golf or bowling may be a thing of the past because conservative measures like diet, exercise and medications no longer provide relief or alleviate your pain. If this is you, it may be time to consider joint replacement.
We have created a special program that brings together a team of experienced and expert surgeons with caring and specially trained nurses, therapists and technicians. Our goal is to provide seamless, coordinated care, and get you back to your favorite activities as soon as possible.
Dedicated Place, Dedicated People
Within St. Peter’s Hospital, we have created a special area just for the care of our knee and hip replacement patients. No hospital gowns for this crowd – you get to wear your own clothes! And family members are encouraged to participate in group activities. Exercise and therapy is also provided in a group setting, so that our patients can support and encourage each other on the road to recovery. New friendships are made, enhancing the healing process.
Our team of physicians, nurses and therapists takes a multidisciplinary approach to helping our patients return to their active lifestyles. Working together, our experienced clinical staff provides high quality care in a healing environment.

Our Commitment to Excellence
We are continuously evaluating and measuring our performance to ensure that we provide the highest quality program possible, tailored to each and every patient. Our team meets regularly with a focus on maintaining clinical and service excellence in all aspects of your joint replacement experience.
We know you have a choice of where to go for your procedure. Our goal is to ensure that your stay with us is as pleasant and as comfortable as possible.
