From the relaxing surroundings of our facility to the patient-centered, compassionate care you receive, your total comfort and peace of mind are our top priorities.
Preparing for Orthopedic Surgery
Your doctor will provide important information on how to prepare for your procedure. Our pre-operative team will contact you about pre-procedural testing.
After surgery, our primary goal is your comfort and safety. There are many different options available for pain management. You doctor will discuss what is the best choice for you.
We encourage walking around as soon as possible after surgery to prevent complications. If appropriate for you, we will even get you out of bed the same day as your surgery. Most of our orthopedic patients stay with us for two to five days and then return home with home health care or to a rehab facility for additional therapy. Each patient room has a couch that transforms into a bed, so loved ones can stay with you overnight if you wish.
If you don't have someone to help you when you get home or may need some extra rehab, we will give you some pointers on selecting a rehab facility. If you do need home health care following surgery, we can recommend several home care agencies.
Recovering at St. Joseph's Hospital-South is a truly unique experience. Our advanced nursing care, beautiful patient rooms and cutting-edge patient monitoring make all the difference to our orthopedic surgery patients.
