Led by an expert group of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, Mount Carmel's total joint replacement team also includes orthopedic nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists who specialize in providing comprehensive services for patients from across the country who need joint replacements.
Depending on the patient's age, lifestyle and activity level, our physicians carefully select the most appropriate surgery and implant. Our surgeons have experience with advanced technologies and procedures, including total knee, hip, shoulder and elbow replacements, unicompartmental knee surgery and hip resurfacing surgery. In fact, Mount Carmel surgeons perform more joint replacement procedures than any other hospital system in Columbus. Our surgeons also participate in cutting-edge research on hip replacement techniques and technologies.
Mount Carmel's total joint replacement program includes pre-operative education and comprehensive postoperative rehabilitation to help restore function, mobility and strength to the affected joint.
For patients requiring a second joint replacement, also called a revision, our specialists — including revision specialists — are skilled and experienced in the procedure.
