The Orthopedic Center

The Orthopedic Center Provides Great Care After Joint Replacement Surgeries

If you need orthopedic, or bone/joint, surgery, you have a great choice where you can recover! The Orthopedic Center, on the fifth floor of Penn Highlands DuBois, in conjunction with The Rehabilitation Center, offers a specific recovery process for patients recovering from hip or knee surgery. Our goal is to get patients back to their active lifestyles following joint surgery.

After surgery, patients are transferred into our dedicated inpatient unit, where they will receive educational, medical and rehabilitation services during their stay. Modern rooms and amenities are designed specifically for the post-surgical joint patient. The décor is designed to make patients feel as though they are in the comfort of their own homes while they recover. The therapy gym is located within the unit so patients don’t have far to go for their physical therapy — one of the most important steps on the road to fast recovery.

Patients in the center are cared for by their expert surgeons, specially trained nurses, therapists and aides. Even our volunteers have special training in joint surgery recovery. We follow a unique staffing model that integrates education, personal coaching and clinical excellence under a common goal of rapid recovery and improved quality of life.

Best Outcomes for You

Our comprehensive joint replacement program is based on a national best practice model for hip and knee replacements, and is structured around the fundamental principle of wellness. The hospitals that implement this program — with the support of their physicians — report superior outcomes.
