DRH Joint Replacement Center
The Joint Replacement Center at Duncan Regional Hospital offers large private rooms and a state-of-the-art rehabilitation gym that uses simulated golfing, skiing, and shopping to promote recovery.
We take a patient-centered approach designed to help you quickly, safely, and comfortably return to the activities you enjoy.
Our pre-operative classes educate you on what to expect, how to prepare for surgery, and what recovery will entail. Patients are encouraged to choose a coach (family or friend) to assist them during their rehab session.
Our patients experience:
Better mobility in the new joint at discharge
Increased ability to walk greater distances at discharge
Shorter hospital stays (normally two days)
Higher patient satisfaction
Duncan Regional Hospital’s Joint Replacement Center has earned the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for its Joint Replacement – Knee & Hip programs.
