How the Program is Different
A Dedicated, Adirondack-themed, Unit with Private Rooms (and a great view) - All activities take place in the Joint Care Center on R6, a dedicated space set aside for hip and knee replacement clients. The environment encourages you to achieve your personal best.
ConforMIS – We're the first in Clinton, Essex and Franklin county to offer this state-of-the-art, customizable knee replacement option. Your 3D printed, customized knee fits you perfectly based on a CT Scan of your actual knee. Learn more about the ConforMIS customized knee here.
Comprehensive Guidebook - Education about your procedure begins in your physician’s office. You’ll receive a comprehensive guidebook to explain your surgery, a list of pre-op strengthening activities, and how to prepare your home for discharge.
Advanced Pain Control & Rapid Recovery Surgical Techniques - Our surgeons use the most advanced analgesic and minimally invasive techniques that result in less pain and quicker recovery.
A Dedicated Staff - Our staff has been chosen specifically because of their expertise; positive, upbeat nature and high motivational skills.
Street Clothes - You won’t wear a hospital gown. You’ll be asked to bring comfortable clothes – sweats, shorts – to wear during the day.
Coach - Choose a family member or friend to be an active participant in your care before, during and after discharge. They learn the program right along with you and provide encouragement and support.
