Joint Replacment in 1, 2, 3
Considering joint replacement surgery? We know it may seem overwhelming. That's why at Pottstown Hospital, 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, specialized 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. A few weeks before your surgery, you'll attend a class, along with a personal coach (friend or family member who lends additional support). There, you'll meet members of your care team; receive a comprehensive guidebook covering your procedure, hospital stay and postoperative care; learn how to plan for a smooth transition home; and ask any and all 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. Find peace of mind knowing our program has earned the Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval® for Hip and Knee Replacement. That means we meet the highest national standards for quality and safety, while providing advanced joint replacement solutions that often offer less pain, faster recovery and a stronger, more functional joint.
Finally, you'll spend a few days recovering in our dedicated orthopedic unit, offering a personalized, home-like experience. Everyone's a little different, but on the first day, you'll work with a physical therapist to get up and moving. The next day, you'll continue to build confidence as you work on recovery goals. The day you leave, we'll answer any last-minute questions—and send you home ready to rediscover the life you love.
