Joint Replacement

Our joint replacement surgeons perform over 800 joint surgeries a year on joints including the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle. They apply the latest proven techniques and technologies in their medical and surgical approaches, including complex revision orthopedic surgery and minimally invasive techniques.

Two key points serve as examples of the excellent care and surgical expertise at Beverly Hospital:

  • The typical length of stay at Beverly Hospital for joint replacement is less than three days.
  • Most of our patients can go directly home instead of to a short-term rehabilitation facility.

But what also makes Beverly Hospital stand out is the way in which we prepare our patients and their families and manage their care from start to finish. We are with you every step of the way, ensuring your health and well-being and supporting your recovery and rehabilitation.

Joint replacement can improve your life like you have never imagined. Our doctors, nurses, therapists and entire staff are here to support you in your journey toward pain relief and freedom of motion.

Longer-Lasting Results

Replacement joints are lasting longer than ever before, thanks to recent advances in technology. At Beverly Hospital, our orthopedic surgeons offer the latest replacement joints for your hip, knee, ankle or shoulder.

This means that younger patients don't have to delay surgery and curtail their activities because they are worried that they will soon need another joint replacement down the road. Implanted joints last longer and hold up better than ever - especially when implanted by Beverly Hospital's talented orthopedic surgeons.

We also are committed to measuring our outcomes, and we use this information to improve and enhance our services. In addition to collecting outcome information that is required by regulatory agencies, we also go one step further to track and measure them to ensure our patients are achieving their best recovery possible. So you can be assured that the care you receive is proven effective and at the forefront of medicine.

Preoperative Care

At Beverly Hospital, we have several ways to ensure you will be well prepared for your joint replacement. The first step is our Joint Learning Class, where you will learn all about your procedure and what to expect. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable with your procedure and feel safe going home.

Beverly Hospital also is proud to offer "Pre-Hab," a unique, complimentary program for people having joint surgery. The program allows you to interact one-on-one with trained staff to better prepare for surgery and physical therapy afterwards.

At Beverly Hospital, we offer a seamless continuum of care - consultation, Pre-Hab, state-of-the-art surgery, excellent post-operative care and physical therapy - all close to home.

Pain Relief After Surgery

We are very focused on making your post-surgery pain as minimal as possible. We offer the latest anesthesia techniques and pain relief options after surgery, including multi-modal pain medication.

Multi-modal pain medication involves a combination of both short-acting and long-acting pain relievers that helps you get up and moving as soon as possible after surgery, with a lower chance of side effects such as nausea. This, in turn, can lead to a faster and more effective recovery.

Team Approach to Recovery

After your joint replacement, you will likely need physical therapy to regain motion and get the most out of your new joint. You will have the strength of an entire team behind you, including:

  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Rehab technicians
  • Nursing staff
  • Physicians
  • Care coordinators
