Whether you need a joint pain diagnosis, hip replacement or knee replacement surgery, treatment for shoulder pain, or just some exercise and medicine to slow the progression of a disease like rheumatoid arthritis, Northwest Community Hospital has the expertise to meet your needs.
We treat a full range of orthopedic conditions from elbow and hip pain to knee pain, back pain, shoulder pain and even thumb joint pain. We have an expert staff that will help you determine the causes of joint and muscle pain, counsel you on surgery options, and even help you get started on the path to recovery with our excellent rehabilitation staff.
If the damage to a joint is severe, a hip replacement or knee replacement might be recommended. It’s important to work with a group that understands all of the elements that go into a joint replacement, from pre-operative education to pain management through to home healthcare and physical rehabilitation. At NCH, our Total Joint Replacement Program is designed to get you home faster after surgery and back on your feet sooner. Components of the program include:

Benefits include a shorter hospital stay and a more rapid recovery. Click here to learn how MAKO can help you.
