    Don't Wait to Get Relief from Joint Pain

    The Joint Replacement Center at Lexington Medical Center holds the prestigious distinction as a certified center for hip and knee replacement.

    Why Choose Lexington Medical Center?

    The Joint Replacement Center is a dedicated area used solely for the postoperative care and recovery of joint replacement patients. Patients preparing for knee, hip, and shoulder replacement surgery attend an education program with their families at The Joint Replacement Center prior to their surgery.

    There they meet the members of the joint replacement medical team. The joint replacement medical team includes physicians from Orthopaedics - Lexington and Orthopaedic Associates - Salisbury, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and case managers. The Joint Replacement Center staff members do not rotate through, but are dedicated to the Center and are specially trained in joint replacement procedures.

    High Standard of Care

    Protocols for nursing care, antibiotic therapy, prevention of deep venous thrombosis, pain control, physical therapy, and occupational therapy have all been standardized to provide seamless care and to keep patients as safe and comfortable as possible.

    Better Clinical Outcomes

    Patients experience a level of camaraderie when they go through the rehabilitation process as a group. This group interaction promotes better clinical outcomes. Family support is also encouraged during the acute care process. During the recovery process, patients are encouraged to wear comfortable, casual clothing and to be as active as possible.
