Joint Solution helps restore you to a higher quality of living with your new prosthetic joint. Annually, over 400,000 people undergo total joint replacement surgery. Primary candidates are individuals with chronic joint pain from arthritis that interferes with daily activities, walking, exercise, leisure, recreation, and work. The surgery aims to relieve pain, restore your independence and return you to work and other daily activities.
Total knee replacement patients recover quickly. Patients may be able to walk the first day after surgery. Generally, patients are able to return to driving in two to four weeks, dance in four to six weeks and golf in six to twelve weeks.
Joint Solution at Rutherford Regional Medical Center has developed a comprehensive planned course of treatment. We believe that you play a key role in ensuring a successful recovery. Our goal is to involve you in your treatment through each step of the program.
Your team includes physicians, nurses, orthopedic surgical technicians, and physical and occupational therapists specializing in total joint care. Every detail, from pre-operative teaching to post-operative exercising, is considered and reviewed with you. The Joint Solution Coordinator will plan your individual treatment program and guide you through it.
