After Surgery

Once your joint procedure is complete, you can expect a short stay on our inpatient Joint Replacement Center at SVH. Here, you will be cared for by knowledgeable, dedicated orthopedic nurses and a committed team of physical and occupational therapists devoted to your joint's rehabilitation success. Our quick approach to joint functionality through individual and group therapies has provided for improved patient outcomes, and speedy recovery times.

Discharge planning starts the moment you arrive to the SVH Joint Replacement Center to ensure a smooth transition whether it be to home, or a facility where additional rehab can take place. The Orthopedic Care Coordinator and Case Manager will work closely with you, your loved ones and your medical and nursing team to make certain that all the necessary steps are in place for your continued success upon discharge from SVH.
