Considering joint replacement surgery? We know it may seem overwhelming. That's why at the Sunbury Orthopedic Care Center, we've designed our program to put you at ease.
In just three steps, we'll see you through every phase of care, from pre-op education through your last inpatient therapy session. Along the way, you'll have the support of a dedicated care team - including your surgeon, program coordinator, orthopedic nurses, physical therapists and more - committed to helping you feel and move like you again.
When it comes to joint replacement, the more informed you are, the better your experience. In the weeks leading up to your surgery, you'll have the opportunity to meet with members of your dedicated care team; learn about your procedure, hospital stay and postoperative care; plan for a smooth transition home; and ask any 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. At Sunbury, we offer minimally joint replacement solutions, including anterior approach hip replacement - a muscle-sparing alternative to traditional procedures. These techniques often allow your surgeon better precision with less incision - which may mean less pain, speedier recovery and a stronger, more functional joint for you.
Finally, you'll spend a few days recovering in your own private room. Everyone's a little different, but on the first day, you'll work with a physical therapist to get up and moving. From there, we'll focus on achieving daily goals, helping build your confidence. The day you leave, we'll answer any last-minute questions - and send you home ready to rediscover the life you love.
The Sunbury Orthopedic Care Center provides joint replacement solutions to the Northumberland County and Susquehanna Valley communities we love to serve. Call (570) 933-7068 or find an orthopedic surgeon who can help you find relief.
