The physical pain and the psychological stress of arthritis and joint trauma don't have to compromise your quality of life. At Piedmont Hospital, comprehensive total joint care and joint replacement is performed by a collaborative team of orthopaedic surgeons, orthopaedic nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and social workers. Patient care begins with thorough evaluation and education and continues through post-surgical therapy and follow-up.
The primary focus is to educate patients and their caregivers about what to expect before, during and after surgery, ensuring a successful, safe return to independent living.
