JointAcademyLogo.gifThe Lourdes Joint Academy is the most comprehensive and effective total joint program in the area. Being a patient at our Joint Academy is all about the experience and your outcome. From our extensive pre-operative education and exercise, to your surgery and subsequent hospital stay, and finally your post discharge care - we will coordinate the entire experience for you, insuring you the quickest and safest return to normal activities.

Our patients are asked to share their experience with a relative or a friend (a tutor) to assist them with the educational and recovery process. Our patients are treated as if they are well individuals, not as if they are sick, with expectations set accordingly. As a result of our well coordinated and proactive approach to joint replacement surgery most of our patients are able to return home within a few days of surgery.

We feature a dedicated staff on a specially-designated unit who care for our joint replacement surgery patients.

The results of the Joint Academy are amazing! Most joint replacement patients are discharged to home within a few days-because of their rapid recovery.

This is what some of our patients had to say: 

"I cannot begin to express my appreciation for the Joint Academy Program you've established at Lourdes. It is one of the most humane, empowering and effective applications of interdisciplinary health care I have ever experienced. The quality of the nursing care was exceptional. Your PT staff was wonderful. The mission statement of the hospital was given a "face", a "voice" and a "touch" that brought it alive. I have been bragging about your program nearly endlessly....

Thank you not only for good medicine, but for good thinking."

Rev. Thomas A. Clemow, Oneonta, NY
