The Joint Replacement Institute
Mission Regional Medical Center's Joint Replacement Institute has earned
The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval™ for
Total Hip Replacement and
Total Knee Replacement by demonstrating compliance with The Joint Commission's national standards
for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care.
The Joint Replacement Institute strives to prepare patients for surgery
in all aspects including physically and mentally by making sure patients
are at their healthiest for these elective surgeries, educating patients
beforehand for optimal outcomes after surgery and to promote a speedier
recovery. Patients enlist in a pre-op education program that provides
them with valuable information and an opportunity to complete a pre-op
work-up required for the surgery all in one visit.
Undoubtedly, there are a number of other good reasons why our physicians
have earned national recognition for their orthopedic care in the Rio
Grande Valley. The most important reason is that our physicians at Mission
Regional Medical Center devote themselves to helping you return to a healthy
and active lifestyle.
