Joint Wellness Program 

The Joint Wellness Program is designed to provide comprehensive care for patients who undergo joint replacement. Our patient-centered and compassionate approach can help you return to normal, active living. 

Our program features a designated unit within the hospital that includes all private rooms. Your care is delivered by a dedicated staff specially trained in orthopaedics. A Joint Wellness coordinator will visit with you to assist in meeting your needs. 

Program Features

Some of the features that you may enjoy during your stay with us are listed below. Our goal is to make your stay a comfortable experience while working with you to get you back to an active lifestyle.

  • Area dedicated specifically for patients having joint replacement surgery.
  • A family member or friend can be your designated coach to help speed your recovery and assist with therapy.
  • Dedicated staff trained to work with joint replacement patients.
  • Back in casual clothes soon after surgery.
  • Frequent updates of events and procedures.
  • Group exercises.
  • Education sessions.
  • Coordinated care after discharge.
  • Written instructions

It’s a joint effort at Baylor and we appreciate the opportunity to assist you on your road to recovery. 

During your stay, you will participate with other patients who have had a joint replacement in group physical therapy. Family or friends are encouraged to participate and act as your “coach” during the therapy classes. We encourage you to wear your own clothes which helps eliminate the “inpatient” feeling and promotes the “wellness” concept.
