Total Joint Replacement Program
The Total Joint Replacement Program at Columbus Community Hospital was developed with a “Patient-Centered-Care” focus. This focus guides us in recognizing and caring for every detail that can impact our patient’s physical and emotional needs.
We believe that the key to a successful and quick recovery following joint replacement surgery is education. All of our patients have a one on one educational session with our Orthopedic Coordinator about a week before surgery. Information such as pain control, activities, and general education on what to expect before, during and after your joint replacement surgery will be discussed. We will even begin talking about your discharge plan for a safe return home.
A few months after your surgery we will invite you, along with others who had the same surgery, back for a Celebration meal. This will give you the opportunity to meet other total joint patient’s to compare stories and tips.
Members of your joint replacement team all share a passion for helping guide you and your family through the entire curriculum of care. The team consists of:
I am glad that I choose to stay in Columbus for surgery for convenience of friends and family to be able to visit. The doctor, nurses and therapy staff were very helpful and friendly.
- A coordinator who oversees the process and guides patient’s to a successful recovery.
- Specially selected nurses and scrub techs in the Operating room who are proficient in assisting with total joint replacement surgery.
- Nurses on acute care who have specific education in the care of total joint patient’s.
- Rehabilitative services staff (physical and occupational therapy) educated on the latest treatment and rehab techniques.
- Surgeon’s and Physician Assistant’s who share the vision of quality and excellence in patient care with the hospital staff.
My surgery was good and with my care from hospital staff I will be able to enjoy going to my grandkids sports and enjoy outside life again.
The first total joint replacement surgery performed at Columbus Community Hospital was approximately 30 years ago. We continue our strong tradition and commitment to you in providing quality orthopedic care here close to home.
I would be happy to answer any questions that you might have regarding your bone health, surgery and orthopedic services provided here, at your hospital; Columbus Community Hospital.
