A New Approach to Joint Replacement Rehabilitation
Guthrie's Joint Camp is a program designed for people who suffer from hip and knee pain and are in need of hip or knee replacement. Joint Camp begins prior to surgery, when people begin a physical strengthening program and attend an educational session to learn more about the procedures and what will occur during their hospital stay.
Guthrie Joint Camp is based on a group care approach to education and rehabilitation. The goal of the program is to increase post-surgical mobility and to improve clinical outcomes and the total joint replacement experience. Joint replacement patients all reside on the same floor during their hospital stay, and are cared for by specially trained nurses and staff.
Guthrie Joint Camp's multidisciplinary team includes surgeons, surgical technicians, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, physical and occupational therapists, therapy technicians, nurses, clinical pharmacists, a social worker, discharge care coordinators and clinic office staff.
