Joint Replacement Center
Today, we enjoy longer, more active lives than at any time in history. Yet, as we age, our bodies change, and sometimes those changes result in specific problems related to joints and muscles. Painful, stiff joints can impact your lifestyle and prevent you from participating in the daily activities you enjoy.
Ask the Expert: Joint Replacement
At Suburban Hospital’s Joint Center, we apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient. It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, when surgery becomes the right choice, your recovery will be motivated by enhanced family / patient education, personal coach, and group physical therapy in our on-site gym. Our experienced nursing team and skilled rehabilitation specialists will help you resume the active, pain-free lifestyle that had once seemed beyond reach.
Suburban Hospital’s Joint Replacement Program is one of the busiest in the state, caring for more than 1,300 patients each year.
