The 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
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
"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
