Hip Replacement

 Hip and Joint Replacement in South Jersey

Back in Stride

Walking will be enjoyable again. And you can once again play with your kids or grandkids and not wince in pain. Hip replacement can help you overcome severe pain that limits your activity. This surgery will replace all or part of the hip joint with an artificial device. A total hip prosthesis is surgically implanted to replace the damaged bone within the hip joint.

These days, there is no “right” age to get a joint replacement. Many younger individuals now opt for joint replacement, since the latest generation of these technologically advanced implants can last for 25 to 30 years. You don’t have to wait to get back to an active, pain-free life. Virtua’s Joint Replacement Institute provides a comprehensive continuum of state-of-the-art surgical, nursing and rehabilitative care that includes everything from a pre-surgery orientation class and pre-admission testing, to discharge planning and rehabilitation. All in South Jersey.

Virtua’s Joint Replacement Institute is dedicated to the recovery and return to functionality of all total joint replacement patients. Individualized, personalized care and attention are hallmarks of the Virtua program. And the Virtua surgeon you choose is the surgeon who cares for you before, during and after surgery. All care is overseen by a supportive staff of highly skilled professionals including your orthopedic surgeon, experienced registered orthopedic nurses and a clinical team.
