When you have pain in your hip, knee, shoulder or ankle, surgery is rarely your first choice. But when a new joint is necessary, it’s important to know that one health system is the choice of more joint-replacement patients than any other in our region.
Rochester Regional Health provides joint-replacement care from the region’s most experienced surgeons, and a true continuum of services that takes complete care of you before, during and after your procedure. Our comprehensive, patient-focused process will help you quickly return to an active, healthy life.
Unity Hospital, Rochester General Hospital, Newark-Wayne Community Hospital, and United Memorial Medical Center have earned the Joint Commission Joint Seal of Approval™ for excellence in hip and knee replacements, and Unity has been named Excellus BlueCross BlueShield Blue Distinction Centers for hip and knee replacement. These achievements recognize our high quality and low rates of complications and readmission.
At Rochester Regional, you’re an important member of your own care team. Our joint-replacement programs are designed to help you return to your active lifestyle as quickly as possible. Most patients are able to walk the day after their surgery, and move towards normal activity in six to 12 weeks.
Wherever you call home in Western New York or the Finger Lakes, you’ll find convenient access to a Rochester Regional Health orthopaedic surgeon who can help you develop a joint replacement plan that fits your needs.
