The OSF Joint Replacement Center in Bloomington, Illinois, offers the expert care of a dedicated team specially trained in caring for patients with hip and knee replacement. The center features private patient rooms as well as exercise, therapy, and dining areas.
Our staff, including physicians, nurses, nursing assistants, and physical and occupational therapists, has revolutionized the way patients receive elective knee and hip replacement through a group approach to care.
The center incorporates fun into recuperation including education and exercise in a group that gives patients and their families an opportunity to network with others in similar situations. The program focuses on a quick recovery and the return to an active lifestyle.
If you and your physician decide joint replacement surgery is necessary, you will be scheduled for a pre-operative class. The class is taught by a therapist, and a registered nurse.
Here you will learn how to prepare for a safe surgery, what to expect during your hospital stay, begin to set your discharge goals, and meet fellow joint replacement patients who are also scheduled for surgery.
Patients who have knee or hip replacement at the OSF Joint Replacement Center receive important discharge instructions and information, as well as exercises to make the transition from the hospital to home as seamless as possible.
