A Positive Approach

A positive approach when preparing for your surgery is a key step in your recovery. The goal of joint replacement is to relieve your existing pain and improve your mobility, thus improving your quality of life. A large part of your recovery process will involve using your new joint by walking and performing exercises ordered by your surgeon. We ask that you make a commitment to follow your doctor’s instructions and work on your exercises.

Your stay with us at Fairfield Medical Center will be brief, and you will continue to recover after your discharge. Therefore, we ask your surgeon and family about the best place for you to recover. This may be at home or at a rehabilitation facility. Since each patient recovers differently, your recovery and exercise plan will be tailored to you. Please talk with the staff if you need support, either emotionally or physically, in coping with your surgery and recovery.

We are experts in our field. Certified orthopedic nurses who have received focused training in this medical specialty provide unparalleled care to all patients on the unit. Each registered nurse in the orthopedic unit must meet certain criteria to be eligible to sit for the certification exam offered by the National Association of Orthopedic Nurses (NAON). We hold our staff to the highest standards to ensure you receive the highest quality of specialized care.

We will get you moving again. Each patient receives expert physical therapy the day of surgery, and twice daily thereafter until hospital discharge to ensure a fast road to successful recovery. When needed, a comprehensive sports and work-related injury rehabilitation program is also offered.

We are known for exceeding expectations. Satisfaction rates for FMC orthopedic patients are consistently at 98 percent, which earned the unit the prestigious President’s Award. Thorough patient education is provided before and after surgery. Both outpatient and inpatient options are available.

Our procedures reduce the need for medication. During your surgery, we can customize your pain treatment based on your specific needs.  We will use state of the art methods to ensure that your operation is as pain free as possible. With the introduction of this procedure, usage of oral pain control medication has been reduced by 28 percent for total joint replacement patients.
