JONESBORO, Ark. – NEA Baptist now offers enhanced services for joint replacement patients with the addition of The Total Joint Center at NEA Baptist. The Total Joint Center is a program for shoulder, knee and hip replacement patients. This new program will provide cross – functional care for patients to better prepare them for surgery.
Patients can expect surgery specific information, one on one support, improved care during their stay and details on what to expect when they return home.
In The Total Joint Center program a pre-op class is required before surgery. Patients will receive a guidebook specific to their joint surgery. After surgery, patients will attend a group physical therapy session, in addition to their individual physical therapy sessions. Patients are also required to attend a discharge class, and personalized follow ups will be managed individually with each patient after surgery.
To enroll in The Total Joint Center program contact our NEA Baptist Orthopedic Clinic at 870-936-8000. Class sizes are limited and patients are asked to bring a family member to their pre-op class.
The Total Joint Center is located at the NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital on the fifth floor, 4800 E. Johnson Ave. in Jonesboro.
