A Better Experience with the Best Possible Outcome.

We then develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses specific pain and identifies the best path for our patients to regaining mobility and better health.

About Ascension Crittenton’s Orthopaedic Patient Care

Approximately one month prior to surgery, patients attend New Beginning, a preparatory class designed to give patients the upfront information needed for a successful joint replacement experience.

In a hospital, sometimes it takes more than a comfy pillow to get a good night’s rest. That’s why our Joint Replacement Center is a dedicated unit where expert staff are assigned to care exclusively for orthopaedic patients. That means patients are surrounded by familiar faces throughout the duration of their stay.

Ascension Crittenton returns patients to their personal independence through rehabilitation in both individual and group settings. Throughout therapy, Ascension Crittenton staff and patients are there to coach, support, encourage and inspire. Initially, patients attend physical therapy twice-a-day in our state-of-the-art training center. When patients are ready to leave us, we’ll still remain focused on their care with follow-up reunion lunches where we can check progress and answer any questions.
