Debi Fenton, RN, Joint Care Coordinator
Joint replacement is a surgical procedure where the worn out surfaces of a joint are resurfaced with metal and plastic components.
The MemorialCare Joint Replacement Center at MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center is a leader in Southern California for hip and knee replacement performing more than 400 procedures a year. With a philosophy of wellness and mobility our patients undergo hip or knee replacement surgery and start walking the same day. Ninety-eight percent of our patients walk 300 feet at discharge.
Promoting a sense of wellness our patients dress in their own comfortable clothing and spend the day out of bed resting in recliners when not participating in group therapy or walking. Hospital stay is 1 - 2 days.
The program is designed to return you to a healthy and active lifestyle as quickly as possible. Ninety-one percent of patients surveyed would recommend our program to family and friends.
If you answered yes to any of these questions, speak with your doctor about whether or not you are a candidate for joint replacement. Call our Joint Care Coordinator at (562) 933-4014 for information or questions about our program.
