Eisenhower Makes BEST List for Knee and Hip Replacements
Eisenhower Medical Center was recently recognized as one of the top 97 hospitals in the United States for outcomes following joint replacement surgery, according to a survey by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Of the 97 hospitals surveyed, Eisenhower is one of only eight California hospitals listed who performed better than average in avoiding readmissions.
The measured outcomes were based on Medicare data on how well patients fare after hip and knee replacement surgeries. The two outcome categories were readmissions after surgery and complications following surgery, such as a blood clot, infection, problem with the artificial joint or death. In judging hospitals, Medicare evaluated cases between July 2009 and June 2012.
Who We Are
The philosophy of Eisenhower Joint Replacement Center is based upon the foundation that our patients are motivated to improve the quality of their life. With this in mind, we have developed a program that is designed to get you back on your feet, back at home and back doing the activities that you enjoy as quickly as possible. Our patients are provided with several therapy treatments a day, which is initiated on the day of surgery. Changing into your own clothes by the second day following surgery enhances independence and a return to normalcy.
Most of our patients are discharged from the hospital after three days or less and are able to go directly home with minimal assistance. Because medical studies have shown that joint replacement patients recover best and most quickly when they can go home directly from the hospital, everything in our program is designed to help streamline this process. Scientific studies have also shown that high volume specialty centers have the best outcomes for patients undergoing joint replacement surgery. That is exactly what you will find at the Eisenhower Joint Replacement Center.
Eisenhower Joint Replacement Center is operated by a dedicated care team. Our physicians are among the best in Southern California in terms of caring, excellence and clinical outcomes. Using the most modern technology and surgical techniques allows for a more rapid recovery and longer lasting joint function. The physicians are able to restore the joy of movement to our patients and truly revitalize lives. A Nurse Navigator follows our patients through their surgical experience, ensuring they have the information and support they and their families require to make this experience successful. Our orthopedic nursing staff has received specialized training in assisting orthopedic patients with mobility. Physical and occupational therapists are extremely competent and are able to design specific accelerated therapy programs to help individuals meet their own personal activity goals.
