Total Joint Replacement (TJR)
Our Total Joint Replacement (TJR) program uses state-of-the-art technology
and advanced surgical techniques to remove damaged cartilage and rebuild
the joint area using metal, plastic or ceramic components.
Once your doctor has scheduled your procedure, you will attend a free pre-operative
TJR class where you will meet your Orthopedic Clinical Care Coordinator.
In the class, you will be provided information about your surgery and
recovery personalized to your unique situation.
