Listen to Mike Nevil share his joint replacement experience


There may come a time when knee or hip pain may reduce the quality of your life. Everyday activities, such as walking, shopping or housework can become difficult or unbearable.  If this is you, it may be time to consider joint replacement.

What sets us apart

SSM Health has created a special area just for the care of our knee and hip replacement patients.  Here's how we're doing things differently:

  • No hospital gowns for this crowd - you wear your own clothes!
  • A support person is encouraged to participate in group activities, meals and other special events
  • Exercise and therapy done as a group, so patients can support and encourage each other

At SSM Health Monroe Hospital's Joint Center of Excellence, we believe the key to better outcomes is a commitment to superior education for you and your family. Our comprehensive approach includes:

  • An informative pre-op class for patients and family
  • DVD or online presentations to help explain your specific procedure
  • A Patient Guidebook
  • Daily newsletters during your stay with us
  • Educational wall displays answering the most frequently asked questions

And finally, we embrace the latest technology so you have a better experience and a better outcome. Check out the difference our new MAKO Surgical System can make!
