Joint Replacement: What To Expect
This presentation walks you through a complete guide to best prepare you for joint replacement surgery at Jefferson.
The orthopedics team at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals offers the latest in diagnostic imaging and testing, surgical techniques and implants, medical treatments, pain management, rehabilitation therapies and prevention measures to ensure that every patient receives high quality, comprehensive and efficient care.
Jefferson's Joint Replacement Program is one of the nation's most prestigious, reflected in an impressive volume of more than 6,700 joint replacement surgeries performed annually.
The reconstructive surgeons of the Rothman Institute at Jefferson and Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals' Department of Orthopedic Surgery have undergone advanced subspecialty training, translating to excellent surgical outcomes.
Our orthopedic specialists and surgeons have also been instrumental in:
- Advancing new technologies in joint replacement, including the design, study and development of various lower and upper prostheses
