The Joint Care
Plus program at CaroMont Health is a comprehensive Orthopaedic program based
on proven practices. The Human Motion Institute's Joint Care
Plus program focuses heavily on the patient’s experience and providing
patients and their “coaches” information about their procedure
ahead of time. Our goal is to prepare patients for what they can expect
before, during and after surgery. We provide extensive pre-surgery patient
education opportunities in a classroom environment, allowing patients
and their coaches the opportunity to ask questions and gain as much information
as possible by our multidisciplinary team prior to their admission to
CaroMont Health. During the patient’s Joint Care
Plus experience, they will attend physical therapy classes with a group of fellow
patients twice daily and they will have opportunity to attend a specialized
postoperative educational session.
The Joint Care
Plus program is available to patients receiving total joint replacement surgeries.
The program currently works with patients undergoing full or partial replacements
of the shoulder, hip or knee joints. Our team of experts includes physicians,
nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals, whose goal is to
return our patients home as quickly as possible while achieving maximum
function as safely and quickly as possible.
CaroMont Regional Medical Center participates in the Medicare initiative
called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model.
