Genesys Hip and Knee Replacement Program

Welcome to the Hip and Knee Replacement Program at Genesys Regional Medical Center, the region's leader in joint replacement surgery. This interdisciplinary program of specialists and highly trained staff is designed to help you return to your normal routine as quickly as possible under the medical direction of your orthopedic surgeon.



The Program
The Hip and Knee Replacement Program at Genesys links all aspects of joint replacement surgery into one simple, straightforward and easy-to-understand program. From pre-operative exercises to surgery, to rehabilitation and post replacement mobility, the program is centered around your total care and comfort.

Beginning with pre-operative educational seminars, patients selected for the Hip and Knee Replacement Program at Genesys are admitted as a group, with surgery scheduled the same day. Rehabilitation therapy begins the next day, and most patients will leave the hospital later that same week.

Most patients reach their post-surgery goals due to the program's unique group physical therapy sessions where spouses or significant care givers act as "coaches." After the hospital stay, patients are discharged to their home or other residential setting where the joint replacement program follows the patient's activities, determining if additional care is required.
