Northern Hospital Joint Replacement Center



The Northern Hospital Joint Replacement Center offers a unique patient experience for those in need of hip or knee replacements.  Each step is designed to encourage the best results leading to a discharge from the hospital two to three days after surgery.

The goal is to return you to an active lifestyle as quickly as possible. We believe the patient plays a key role in promoting a successful recovery.  Patients and their families attend educational classes prior to surgery to help them understand what to expect every step of the way.



Unique features of the program include:

  • Experienced Board-Certified Orthopaedic Surgeons
  • Dedicated nurses and therapist trained to work with total joint replacement patients
  • Private rooms
  • Family and friends participating as coaches in the recovery process
  • A Joint Care Coordinator who coordinates your care
  • A Case Management team who coordinates your discharge planning
  • A comprehensive PATIENT GUIDE for you to follow from six weeks before surgery until three months after surgery
  • SPECIAL CLASSES for patients scheduled for joint replacement surgery
