Considering joint replacement surgery? We know it may seem overwhelming. That's why at Easton Hospital, our JointWorks! program is designed to make the journey a little easier.
In just three steps, we'll see you through every phase of care, from pre-op education through your last inpatient therapy session. And you'll experience it all in a small group, "summer camp" setting with people just like you. Together, you'll share successes, concerns - maybe even a few laughs - as you start to feel and move like you again.
When it comes to joint replacement, the more informed you are, the better your experience. A few weeks before your surgery, you'll attend a class with your group. There, you'll have the opportunity to meet members of your care team; learn about your procedure, hospital stay and postoperative care; plan for a smooth transition home; and ask questions to feel confident and prepared.
On the big day, your surgeon will make sure you're comfortable, and review what to expect before, during and immediately after your procedure. Easton Hospital is the only hospital in Greater Lehigh Valley that has earned the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for both total hip and total knee replacement. Take comfort knowing that we meet national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care.
Finally, you'll spend a few days recovering in our dedicated orthopedic unit and working with a physical therapist. Everyone's a little different, but on the first day, we'll work to get you up and moving. The next day, you'll attend group physical therapy and enjoy a special lunch with your personal coach (usually a spouse or friend who lends additional support). The day you leave, we'll answer any last-minute questions - and send you home ready to rediscover the life you love.
Our Center for Orthopedics, Joint and Spine offers joint replacement solutions to the Easton, Bethlehem and surrounding Pennsylvania and New Jersey communities we're pleased to serve.
