Inpatient Care

A dedicated unit is located on the 2nd floor of Sky Lakes Medical Center for patients receiving a total joint replacement. Specialty-trained nurses and other care team members help patients recover after surgery, manage pain levels and prepare to go home.

Rehabilitation

Physical therapists and occupational therapists help patients learn what to expect when they are discharged. They help teach patients the skills necessary to function at home during recovery and teach “coaches” that accompany patients how they can best help their loved one recover.
