(THOUSAND OAKS, CA) - With more and more adults, "baby boomers", and seniors feeling pain in their hips, knees and other joints, Los Robles Hospital knew it was time to develop a special orthopedic program that focuses on joint replacement with a personal touch.
The Total Joint Program at Los Robles Hospital has been developed to provide a completely patient-focused experience. This means that members of the hospital’s Total Joint Team will be with each patient every step of the way to insure the patient’s surgery and recovery is a complete success.
"Deciding to have joint replacement surgery is a big step. The more informed you are about its process, the better prepared you will be," states Britt Fuller, Total Joint Program Coordinator.
"Our program makes sure patients receive the attention they deserve by guiding them through the joint replacement experience. This means that the hospital’s Total Joint Team is with the patient every step of the way to insure the surgery and recovery is a complete success."
The goal of joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain and increase the mobility and function of a damaged joint. If a stiff, painful joint forces a person to cut back on everyday activities, successful surgery may allow him or her to resume those activities they enjoy.
When the patient and doctor agree that it’s time for surgery, The Total Joint Program at Los Robles Hospital is ready to offer patients a comprehensive program designed to meet their individual needs, providing optimal outcomes in the shortest possible time.
