Whether you’ve suffered a sprain or strain or are considering joint replacement surgery, Adena’s orthopaedic specialists have the expertise you need.

Adena Regional Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Advanced Total Hip and Knee Replacement Certification by demonstrating continuous compliance with its performance standards. The Gold Seal is a symbol of quality that reflects a health care organization’s commitment to providing safe and quality patient care.

The certification, in collaboration with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, focuses on the pre-surgical orthopedic consultation to the intraoperative, hospitalization, rehabilitation activities, and follow-up visit with the orthopedic surgeon.

Here are five other reasons to choose Adena Bone & Joint.

1) Patient navigator to help you find your way. Should you need joint replacement surgery, you’ll be assigned a nurse navigator who helps you through the process. Your personal navigator will be beside you to answer questions and schedule your appointments. Instead of having to contact multiple people within the office, the patient navigator serves as a single point of contact.

2) All you need under one roof. “We offer multidisciplinary specialists within the office,” explains Nichole Snyder, practice manager for Adena Bone & Joint. “At other hospitals, you might see an orthopaedic surgeon in one place and then go somewhere else to see a neurologist. We have everything here.” You can even get your X-ray or MRI done here.

3) Conservative approach to care. Most musculoskeletal conditions can be treated without surgery. Led by fellowship trained sports medicine physicians, Adena Bone & Joint considers surgery the last option only when other treatments have failed. Unless emergency surgery is needed, physical therapy, medications and injections are the first treatment options.

4) Expert physicians. Adena’s orthopaedic surgeons and neuro-spine and ortho-spine surgeons have trained at some of the best programs in the country. They’re at the top of their field and represent the largest group of fellowship-trained physicians in the region. This is why Adena is able to provide our patients with the most advanced care available, from diagnosis through discharge and beyond.

5) Patient education. We know that you will do better when you understand your condition and you are a part of deciding your treatment plan. That’s why we work hard to make sure you are part of your own care team. For example, we provide a free 90-minute Joint Replacement Class where you’ll learn what to expect before, during and after joint replacement surgery. You’ll meet some of the members of the Adena joint replacement team, who will be happy to answer any questions you might have about your upcoming procedure.
