Joint Replacement Center

Orthopedic Surgery in the Illinois Valley

Joint replacement, also called arthroplasty, is the use of metal alloy and durable plastic implants to resurface damaged bone and cartilage caused by arthritis.

The Joint Replacement Center is staffed by a team of exceptional orthopedic surgeons and clinicians who are experts in delivering care to patients. Our center provides an environment that emphasizes wellness in joint replacement procedures and maximizes patient recovery efforts through education, physical therapy, family involvement, and group interaction.

Benefits of total joint replacement:

  • Can eliminate or reduce pain
  • Helps patients regain their range of motion
  • Can improve quality of life (return to normal activity with low-impact sports and activities)

What makes The Joint Replacement Center at IVCH different?

Our Joint Center staff partners with a patient’s regular physicians to create a comprehensive and personalized plan of care. At IVCH, we strive to make your recovery time as complete and comprehensive as possible.

Further benefits of IVCH’s Joint Replacement Center:

  • Advanced analgesic and rapid-recovery surgical techniques. Our surgeons are trained in the most advanced analgesic and minimally invasive surgical techniques that result in less pain and a quicker recovery for patients.
  • Recovery process specifically tailored for joint recovery.
  • Dedicated joint rehabilitation unit (with private rooms). All activities—physical therapy, group lunches, and nursing care—take place on a unit dedicated exclusively to joint replacement patients. Large, motivational posters are located throughout the halls of our center.
  • Dedicated staff. All staff at The Joint Replacement Center at IVCH have been chosen specifically because of their expertise; positive, upbeat nature; and high motivational skills.
  • Care coordinator. One person—a care coordinator—oversees the patient’s entire stay, and is a resource before, during and after discharge.
  • Superior outcomes. We evaluate each patient on multiple clinical, functional, and patient satisfaction criteria. These outcomes are analyzed during monthly performance improvement team meetings and enable us to become masters of teamwork. So when we say we offer superior outcomes, we have the data to prove it.
