Joint Replacement in 1, 2, 3

Considering joint replacement surgery? We know it may seem overwhelming. That’s why at the KCH Orthopedic Center, 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. And you'll experience it all in a small, supportive group setting. Together, you'll share successes, concerns—maybe even a few laughs—on the road back to living life like you used to.


Step 1

Discovery

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 with your group, along with a personal coach (friend or family member who lends additional support). There, you’ll meet members of your care team; learn all about your procedure, hospital stay and postoperative care; plan for a smooth transition home; and ask any and all questions to feel confident and prepared. For your convenience, we’ll also do all pre-op testing at the same location on that day.


Step 2

Surgery

On the big day, you’ll be greeted by our dedicated Joint Care Coordinator, and your surgeon will review what to expect before, during and immediately after your procedure. Board-certified specialists at KCH offer minimally invasive joint replacement solutions whenever possible, including the anterior hip approach—a muscle-sparing alternative to traditional procedures. These techniques often offer less pain, faster recovery and a more functional, natural-feeling joint.


Step 3

Recovery

Immediately following surgery, you’ll check into your own private room in our dedicated orthopedic wing, which offers a personalized, home-away-from-home experience as you recover. 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 attend group physical therapy along with your coach, building camaraderie with fellow joint replacement patients. The day you leave, we’ll answer any last-minute questions—and send you home ready to rediscover the life you love.
