Joint Replacement Program & Services

The Joint Replacement Program at Parker Adventist Hospital specializes in joint replacement including hip replacement, knee replacement and shoulder replacement.

Joint Replacement program employees and physicians deliver outstanding, compassionate care to our patients and their families every day, and it shows in the many distinctions Parker Adventist Hospital has received.

  • Joint Commission certified hip and knee replacement program
  • Blue Distinction Center for Hip and Knee Replacement

Our surgical staff at Parker Adventist Hospital has extensive training in hip, knee and shoulder replacement procedures. The use of a specialized team approach allows for increased knowledge of the procedure and individual roles in outcomes. Our state-of-the-art operating rooms follow strict guidelines as set forth by the Association of Peri-Operative Registered Nurses and The Joint Commission, our accrediting and credentialing organizations. These guidelines include rules for infection control, correct site surgery, staff education, instrument care and sterilization and other important areas of patient care.

Our anesthesia service personnel are trained in pain management techniques and best practices in today's research-driven focus. The recovery team includes professional nurses, certified nursing assistants, physical and occupational therapy staff, discharge planning services, housekeeping, pharmacists, dietary services, chaplains and diagnostic staff, all being coordinated by your surgeon and the joint program coordinator
