Hip and Knee Joint Replacement Program

Certified Medical Home Health Care

Hip and Knee Joint Replacement Program

Patients recovering from total hip and knee joint replacement are able to successfully rehabilitate at home with the support of physical therapists, visiting nurses, and home health care aides.
Sterling Care has a specialized program tailored to provide a successful outcome, revolving around consistency of care delivery, achieving better overall health, and lowering readmission rates.

Our program is customized to each patient’s needs and is designed to allow the patient to return to the community safely and comfortably while retaining their independence.

A referral for this program can be made at the same time the surgery is scheduled at the surgeon’s office or at the time of discharge from either a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
