The Orthopaedic Center at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center is a specialized center dedicated to the care of knee and hip replacement patients. This program brings together a team of knowledgeable surgeons with compassionate 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.
We believe the key to better outcomes is a commitment to superior education and the comforts of home for you and your family. Knowing what to expect each step of the way in a soothing environment goes a long way to reducing stress and anxiety and preparing you for a smooth recovery.
In an effort to provide patients with a high-quality, personalized program, we are continuously evaluating and measuring our performance. Our team meets regularly with a focus on maintaining clinical and service expectations in all aspects of your joint replacement experience.
Led by the Joint Care Coordinator, Karen Chastang, our team has been hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills and a desire to provide outstanding service. In addition, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing these important procedures.
The Orthopaedic Center approach to joint replacement surgery encompasses wellness, early mobility, family involvement, education, personal responsibility, group interaction and minimally-invasive and rapid-recovery techniques.
With improvements in surgical techniques and post-operation care, it is now common for many patients to be able to go home from the hospital after two or three days. If you have both knees replaced at the same time, your stay can be a day or two longer. Of course each patient is different, but the goal should be for you to recover in the comfort and privacy of your own home as soon as possible.
We hold frequent seminars on the most common causes and treatment options for knee and hip pain. You’ll learn about the top things you can do for arthritis, as well as, information on medications and diet and exercise tips.
