Sentara OrthoJoint Center®

Dedicated Center, Dedicated People

To create the best outcome after joint replacement surgery, the Sentara OrthoJoint Center® combines support from a dedicated staff, the patient's family and other patients recovering from similar surgeries. 

Staff members at Sentara OrthoJoint Center locations have been hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills and desire to provide outstanding service. The staff has been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing joint replacement surgery.

Family members are encouraged to participate in group activities, meals and other events as the patient recovers.

Exercise and therapy are provided in a group setting so that patients can support and encourage each other throughout recovery following joint replacement surgery. Often, new friendships are made, which enhance the patient's experience.

Patients are assigned an orthopedic patient navigator to serve as their personal connection while they plan for, undergo and recover from joint replacement surgery.

Patients will receive:

An informative pre-operative joint replacement workshop for patients and family.

Presentations to help explain the specific joint replacement surgery.

A comprehensive guidebook for joint replacement surgery.

Daily educational newsletters while a patient is in the hospital.

Ambulation board to help track recovery progress.

Special training for your "coach" – a family member or friend you choose to help with your recovery.

Sentara offers frequent seminars on the most common causes and the latest treatment options for knee and hip pain. Just call 1-800-SENTARA for the time and location of the next seminar.
