Joint Replacement

 

ortho-couple-biking-woods

At Beverly Hospital, our surgeons perform over 1,600 joint surgeries a year, including procedures on the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle. Our team applies the latest proven techniques and technologies in their medical and surgical approaches, including complex revision orthopedic surgery and minimally invasive techniques.

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

Patients undergoing hip, knee, and shoulder replacement surgery at Beverly Hospital also benefit from the New England Baptist Orthopedics Program, whose care model has proven to:

  • Reduce complications such as surgical site infections and hospital readmission
  • Improve care coordination and patient outcomes
  • Enhance preparation for surgery
  • Increase patient satisfaction

We have adopted dozens of evidence-based protocols and procedures from New England Baptist Hospital, and have completed a comprehensive validation survey by their team of experts. Patient benefits include:

  • Nurses, therapists and staff specially trained in orthopedic care
  • Nurses, therapists and case management working with each patient to ensure optimal preparation before, during and after surgery
  • A care team that follows dozens of established clinical practices that are proven to improve outcomes, such as getting you moving within a few hours of surgery and preventing infections with pre- and post-operative protocols

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

But what also sets Beverly Hospital apart is how 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.

Preoperative Care

At Beverly Hospital, we have several ways to ensure you are well prepared for your joint replacement. The first step is our Joint Learning Class, where you learn about your procedure and what to expect.

We are also proud to offer "Pre-Hab," a unique, free program for patients undergoing joint surgery. This program allows you to interact one-on-one with trained staff to better prepare for surgery and the physical therapy that follows your procedure.

Pain Relief After Surgery

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 help you moving as soon as possible after surgery, with a lower chance of side effects such as nausea.

Team Approach to Recovery

Following your joint replacement, you will have the strength of an entire team behind you, including:

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