Joint Replacement

Joint Replacement Team at RWJUH New Brunswick Campus
The compassionate and caring team from the French Street orthopedics unit.

There may come a time when knee or hip pain may reduce the quality of your life. Everyday activities, such as walking or shopping can become difficult or unbearable. Taking part in favorite hobbies such as golf may be a thing of the past because conservative measures like diet, exercise and medications no longer provide relief or alleviate your pain. If this is you, it may be time to consider joint replacement surgery.

Comprehensive Approach to Joint Surgery

The Joint Surgery Center is a special program that brings together a team of experienced and expert surgeons with caring and specially trained nurses, therapists and technicians. Our goal is to provide seamless, coordinated care, and get you back to your favorite activities as soon as possible.

Our comprehensive approach includes:

  • Engaging community outreach seminars
  • A pre-op class for patients and family

Superior Patient Education for Joint Surgery

We believe the key to better joint surgery outcomes is a commitment to superior education for you and your family. Knowing what to expect each step of the way goes a long way to reducing stress and anxiety and preparing you for as smooth a recovery as possible.

Dedicated Care for Joint Surgery Patients

No hospital gowns for this crowd - you get to wear your own clothes! And family members are encouraged to participate in group activities, meals and other special events. Our staff has been hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills and their desire to provide outstanding service.

In addition, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing joint surgery. Our joint care coordinator assists with coordination of all pre-operative care and discharge planning. We know you have a choice of where to go for your procedure. Our goal is to ensure that your stay with us is as pleasant and as comfortable as possible. We have planned a number of special surprises for you to lift your spirits as you speed your way to a more active lifestyle.
