Our Joint & Spine Center

Physical Therapist Scott Wolff understands patient challenges, what’s important to each one, and how to help them get great results.

Overview

The progressive, comprehensive approach we take at our state-of-the-art facility has been recognized nationally, (U.S New and World Report, for starters) but it’s the individuals we’ve helped that matter most. When someone tells us they wish they had done their surgery sooner, that’s when we know that all the extra effort pays off.

OUR FOCUS: Providing the best care possible for patients undergoing joint replacement and spine surgery.

When an entire team is focused on your wellness and rehabilitation, good things happen. Within the progressive atmosphere of the Joint and Spine Center, physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, surgeons, physical therapists, and other experts are in constant communication to see to your individualized care.

OUR RESULTS: We help patients get better and back home sooner than the national average.

Outcomes for our patients dealing with neck, knee, hip and spine issues consistently surpassed national benchmarks in:

  • Reduction of post surgery pain
  • High range of motion at discharge
  • Highest in the country in patient satisfaction

OUR PROCESS: A comprehensive team. A comprehensive plan. An innovative approach.

You are not in this alone. Group therapy begins immediately after surgery, and we even teach family members how to actively become involved with your recovery. From education before surgery, to exercises after surgery, every detail of your care is planned, then continuously reviewed using input from you and your family. You will play a key role in ensuring a successful recovery, but you will be supported every step of the way.

You can attend an event to see if the Joint and Spine Center is right for you.

Care here is different—and our results place us in the top 15% nationally for joint surgery.

  • 99th percentile in patient satisfaction, compared to 413 hospitals nationwide
  • Top percentile ranking nationally for range of motion at discharge
  • Blue Distinction national designation for achieving excellent clinical quality in hip and knee replacement and spine surgery

Studies show that hospitals with high volumes (more than 200 joint replacement and 100 spine surgeries) deliver better outcomes.

Here at the Joint and Spine Center, more than 400 joint replacements and over 350 spine surgeries are performed each year. (That’s extensive experience and expertise on your side, at your side.)

Our process makes us different. Our process makes us better.

As a patient, you'll know what to expect six weeks before surgery. Then, we'll still be there to help you three months later—and beyond.

Care starts with a pre-operative education class where patients and "coaches" (family and friends helping you through the recovery process) learn about the details of your treatment, the ins and outs of your hospital stay, and important advice that will aid in speeding your recovery.

Our continuous care model includes a single team of doctors and healthcare personnel that will be with you throughout the entire treatment and recovery process, establishing a level of comfort and trust that only gets stronger. It's more like we go through the treatment program with you, instead of just performing surgery on you.

After surgery, you’ll get to wear your own clothes, (no hospital gowns!) and participate in group therapy sessions each day. Just don’t be surprised if new friendships are made.
