Joint Replacements

Ascension's integrated approach to arthroplasty, or joint replacement surgery, provides care for your full recovery, not just joint treatment.

About Joint Replacements

Arthroplasty replaces damaged joint surfaces with metal, high-density plastic or ceramic implants to relieve pain and restore mobility. Today’s joint-replacement procedures offer long-term benefits for individuals of all ages and activity levels. Ascension’s innovations in joint replacement procedures, as well as the expertise of our orthopedic surgeons, have helped people improve their range of motion and quality of life.

Ascension's surgical teams are highly experienced in performing joint replacements, and they realize this is a unique experience for you. Our orthopedic nurses and therapists guide you through what to expect before, during and after your surgery. They work closely with you and your physician to design a complete care plan that’s tailored to your specific condition and needs.

After you leave the hospital, Ascension can also provide specialized services, equipment and support for longer recovery times. Our goal is to help you get moving, and enjoying life, again.
