Revolutionary Philosophy Gets Patients Back on Their Feet


Revolutionary Philosophy Gets Patients Back On Their Feet

The MemorialCare Joint Replacement Center at Long Beach Memorial is a leader in Southern California in hip and knee replacements – where a revolutionary philosophy encourages patients to become active as soon as possible – often on the same day of joint replacement surgery. Patients in need of hip and knee replacements go through surgery and into rehabilitation, while promoting wellness and an active hospital stay – an average hospital stay is two to three days.

The Joint Replacement Center at Long Beach Memorial features private patient rooms, a group therapy room, patient education including pre-operative class, discharge class and patient guidebooks, family centered care, rehab coaches and group lunches, all in one dedicated area with outstanding outcomes.
