During surgery, the damaged or arthritic joint is replaced with an artificial implant, which is specifically designed to replicate the natural motion of the original joint. In conjunction with rehabilitation and exercise, joint replacement restores functional independence and allows a person to lead a more full and active life.
Our multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists—board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, and specially trained professional nurses, anesthesiologists, orthopedic physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians and support staff—focus on a customized treatment plan that promotes healing and improves overall strength and mobility.
Patients meet with a board-certified orthopedic specialist for consultation and examination to determine the joint condition, source of pain, and best treatment options, including a full range of non-surgical and arthroscopic treatment alternatives.
Informed patients recover more quickly and more completely. A specially trained Patient Navigator will provide instruction for joint replacement patients in what they can expect to experience and what will be expected of them during the recovery and rehabilitation process.
Surgery is performed in Peconic Bay Medical Center's award-winning Kanas Center for Advanced Surgery, which offers state-of-the-art surgical suites designed to maximize sterility, surgical efficiency and patient safety.
Physical therapy starts almost immediately following surgery, within hours of leaving the Operating Room. Patients are housed in advanced-amenity private rooms adjacent to PBMC's ultra-modern Cary Grossman Center for Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation.
The average hospital stay for Knee Replacement is one day, and three days for Hip Replacement. Days-of-stay vary by age and general pre-op condition of the patient. The Nurse Navigator works with each patient to establish a post-discharge rehabilitation plan. PBMC offers acute, sub-acute, out-patient rehabilitation and in-home therapy services, providing a wide-array of customizable options to suit every patient.
