Joint Replacement Center

What makes us different?

Dedicated staff: Our multi-disciplinary care team will guide you each step of the way. Everyone on staff is specially trained to care for joint replacement surgery patients.

Coaching component: Our patients are encouraged to select a member of their care circle to be their personal support coach. A coach will help support and encourage them to meet milestones during recovery.

Advanced surgical procedures: Surgeons strive to make joint replacement surgery as minimally invasive as possible.

Pain management: We partner with anesthesiologists from Minneapolis Anesthesia Partners, who have implemented a pain management system in which pain relief is specific to your needs and begins even before the surgery starts to ensure you are as comfortable as possible at each step of your surgery.

Continuous improvements: We listen to patients and make changes based on the feedback you provide.
