Our multi-specialty group of orthopedic surgeons offer decades of experience and training and use the latest technology available giving you a fast recovery so you can get back to the activities you love whether it is sports, playing with the grandchildren, gardening or even just going for a walk.
Patient education is the key to a successful joint replacement procedure. At Clark Memorial, you’ll meet your therapist, nurses and surgical team prior to your surgery. We’ll go through the details of your procedure with you and educate you on what you can do to have the best experience possible. Pre-operative teaching ensures you’re an essential part of your joint care team.
For patients that qualify, the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program is offered. The ERAS program is an innovative way to care for you before, during and after surgery. The program involves preparing your body for surgery, a pain control plan to decrease narcotic use, and early walking, eating and drinking after surgery. ERAS helps you take control of your health care and recovery — creating a better surgical experience and a faster recovery.
