Joint Replacement Care
In England and Wales, there are approximately 160,000 total hip and knee replacement procedures performed each year. The number continues to grow, in part, due to people living longer and the accumulative wear and tear on joints. Today, there are even people choosing to undergo repeat replacements.
Home care is an effective part of a patient’s recovery from surgery whether on a stand-alone basis or prior to outpatient therapy.
