You can benefit from our extensive experience in orthopedic care
At Phelps, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatment options for your orthopedic-related aches and pains. While some pains come and go, others may be chronic or occasionally acute, the progressive symptoms of arthritis, or everyday wear and tear on your joints.
If you have arthritis, a traumatic injury, degenerative joint disease, or other painful orthopedic conditions that are reducing your quality of life, a joint replacement might be for you. Joint replacements can eliminate acute and chronic pain, restore mobility and return you to an active life.
Joint pain affects millions of Americans each year. You can take the first steps toward pain-free living by talking with your doctor about your joint pain.

Knowing what to expect can relieve anxiety and help the healing process
At the Phelps Total Joint Replacement Institute, a dedicated team of health professionals, including your surgeon, anesthesiologist, nurses, and physician assistants, will fully support you before, during and after surgery. Your anesthesiologist will explain various anesthesia options and may recommend a particular approach, depending on the procedure you are having. The anesthesiologist will closely monitor you throughout the surgery.
Depending on your diagnosis and the severity of your joint damage, you will most likely receive a partial or total joint replacement. If you hare having a partial replacement, then your surgeon will remove only part of your original joint and replace it with an implant, leaving healthy bone and cartilage intact. If you are having a total joint replacement, then your surgeon will replace your old, degenerated joint with a brand new one.
After surgery, you will recover in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). Our staff will inform your family as soon as you come out of surgery, and let them know when they can visit you. Our nurses will keep monitoring you for the few hours that you are in the PACU and while you continue to recover in our orthopedic care unit. And, our special hospitality team will visit you daily to make sure that you are comfortable.
