Joint Care Nurses
Our nursing staff is comprised of registered nurses and unit technicians working together to provide comprehensive care. Many of our nurses have earned specialty certification in orthopedic nursing (ONC) or Medical/Surgical nursing (CMSRN).
Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners
Your surgeon works with our skilled team to direct your care throughout your hospital stay. Your primary care doctor and his/her support staff will monitor your condition and help meet your care needs.
Physical Therapists and Assistants
Physical therapists guide you in the important work of returning you to your daily activities. They create an exercise plan designed to help you regain strength, balance, range of motion and improved mobility.
Occupational Therapists and Assistants
Occupational therapists will help you recover the ability to perform routine daily tasks, such as bathing and dressing with your new joint. If you need special equipment during rehabilitation, they will help you select and learn to use that equipment.
