Shorter hospital stays often result in a faster return to normal activities.

Transfusion rates


The Joint Replacement Center takes a multi-modal approach to blood management before, during and after a joint replacement. These efforts reduce the potential need for a blood transfusion following a joint replacement procedure.

Deep vein thrombosis rate

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot forms in a deep vein within the body. It is a serious condition that can develop after long periods of inactivity. Post-surgical care at The Joint Replacement Center includes prophylactic treatment to prevent the occurrence of a DVT.
