Results and Outcomes

Patient Surveys

Our patients complete a short SF-36 survey prior to surgery and at 6-month and 12-month points.

That feedback helps us to understand the patients’ perception of their physical and mental wellbeing at those time periods. A significant improvement is noted in the areas of Physical Functioning and Bodily Pain. One year later, patients notice an average of 40 – 41% improvement in those areas.

Volume of Total Joint Procedures

Every year, more than 1,300 patients undergo hip or knee replacement surgery at Memorial Medical Center with additional surgeries taking place at our affiliate hospitals. Organizations that perform a high number of joint replacements enjoy better outcomes and provide an overall safer experience for their patients.

Average Length of Stay

Our care plans are designed to maximize treatment while in the hospital and ensure a safe transition home at the earliest and safest opportunity.
