Joint Replacement Center
The Joint Replacement Center at Duncan Regional Hospital specializes in providing outstanding care for total knee and total hip replacement surgery patients.
The center is equipped with large private rooms, specially trained staff and a state of the art rehabilitation gym that utilizes simulated golfing, skiing, and shopping to promote recovery.
The center is designed for patients to return safely and comfortably to their homes within 2 to 3 days after surgery.
Patients are encouraged to choose a coach (family or friend) to stay with them and help them with their rehab during their stay.
Pre-operative classes are taught to educate you on what to expect, how to prepare and recover from your joint replacement surgery
