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.
