Take back the life you love.
You may have noticed a few gray hairs, maybe a wrinkle or two, but at any age you're too young to let joint pain hold you back. The orthopedic experts at Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican can help you find relief from joint pain and get back to an active life fast.
Leading-edge joint care.
At the Joint Replacement Centers of Dignity H ealth-St. Rose Dominican, our dedicated orthopedic care team of physicians, nurses, therapists and surgeons provide a range of advanced treatments for joint pain. Joint replacement has only gotten better.

At Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican, every patient matters. We're committed to helping you return to a fully active life as quickly as possible. Our Total Joint Program features comprehensive support toward this goal, including:

Family support: Patients choose a family member or friend as a patient coach who will offer additional support throughout pre-surgery, rehabilitation and recovery. You'll learn about joint conditions, treatment plans and what to expect.
Comfortable amenities: Our program includes private rooms and the renowned healing environment of St. Rose, plus in-room accommodations and dining so patient coaches can stay overnight.
Team rehabilitation: Our dedicated orthopedic rehabilitation program pioneered a team approach, placing joint replacement patients together to build a sense of camaraderie that speeds recovery. Our comprehensive therapy promotes rapid recovery and most patients return home within days.

Our Siena Campus earned the Gold Seal of Approval™ from The Joint Commission for its Joint Replacement Unit in 2010, and it was re-certified in August 2012. When it originally received certification, the Siena Campus was the first and only hospital in Nevada certified for Joint Replacement and the only one within the Dignity Health system.
Each year, more than 50,000 Americans make the decision to end their chronic joint pain by undergoing joint replacement surgery, and they are enjoying life again. Our Joint Replacement Centers are scoring high marks among patients who are up on their feet and enjoying active lifestyles after joint replacement surgery.
The programs use a team approach for rehabilitation that develop a real sense of camaraderie among patients in a group/team setting. Surgeries are scheduled so patients go through the rehabilitation process together. Because they are sharing the experience, patients tend to encourage one another thus reducing the average rehabilitation time.
Patients and family members who are well educated about a surgery tend to have less apprehension and do better during both surgery and rehabilitation. So, the week prior to surgery, joint replacement patients and their families are invited to a get together with the Center's staff and other patients with whom they will go through rehabilitation. During the educational classes, questions from surgical schedules, pain management options, post-operative exercise and after-hospital care are covered to ensure the patients are well informed and prepared.
According to Ann Marie McCormick, Manager of Medical/Surgical Services at the Siena Campus, "Over the past 10 years, there have been major advancements in joint replacement by making longer lasting replacement joints and developing simpler, less invasive surgery techniques. At St. Rose, we've gone a step further, adopting a model that asks patients what they need to feel more prepared for surgery and what would make their hospital stay and rehabilitation more comfortable."
Distinguishing Program Characteristics
Wellness Approach - A wellness rather than an illness approach is taken at St. Rose. Joint replacement patients are not "sick" so the program does not treat them as such. Patients are free to wear comfortable clothing instead of traditional hospital gowns after surgery. Rehabilitation takes place in a supportive, group setting aimed at getting patients back on their feet and enjoying pain-free, active lifestyles.
Mentors - Joint Replacement patients are encouraged to have a family member or close friend participate as a mentor in their experience. In addition to being invited to pre-surgical education classes, mentors are given beepers so they can move freely about the hospital and be reached easily when a patient comes out of surgery. Each patient room features a couch or chair that converts to a single bed so that the mentor may stay overnight if they choose.
Daily Newsletters - While in the hospital, patients receive daily newsletter-style agendas - either Hip Tips or Knee News - that provide agendas for each day and tips for a healthy recovery.
Joint Replacement Centers are located at all three Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican hospitals. The surgical programs are covered by most insurance, including Medicare.
