We’re with you every step of the way.
If you’re considering knee or hip replacement, The Joint Replacement Center at RWJ Rahway provides an experienced team to help you before, during, and after surgery. We provide pre-surgery and post-surgery education, clinical expertise, therapy and the individual support you’ll need to reduce your pain, restore function and improve your quality of life.

Our center offers total knee replacement and total and partial hip replacement. Our surgeons are board-certified and have extensive experience in joint replacement and minimally invasive techniques. We provide expert physical therapy and nursing care for your post-surgery recovery. Our goal is helping you meet your goal of living pain-free.

The Experience
The Joint Replacement Center at RWJ Rahway is different from others in the area. As part of your recovery, we involve your family or friends as “coaches,” to help motivate you. You’ll heal alongside those who have had similar procedures and you wear your own clothes, no hospital gowns.

Our staff consists of a joint care coordinator who is an Occupational Therapist trained in rehabilitation, board-certified surgeons and physiatrists, specialized nursing care, licensed Occupational and Physical Therapists, and case managers to help you make the transition from hospital to a pain-free, active life.

After Your Surgery
After your discharge, we offer extensive outpatient physical and occupational therapy. Our therapists are consistently praised for their listening, teaching, and motivational skills. If needed, the hospital provides complimentary transportation services to qualified patients to continue outpatient physical therapy at the hospital. For your convenience, expert outpatient physical therapy is also available at the RWJ Rahway Fitness & Wellness Center in Scotch Plains and Carteret.
