Take the next step toward living with less pain

First, talk with your doctor and schedule your joint replacement surgery. Then, our joint care team at Ascension Sacred Heart will help you learn how to get ready for your surgery. You will also learn what to expect from orthopedic surgery and therapy. We’ll discuss exercises, physical therapy, what to expect after you are home, and more.

Talk to the orthopedic specialists at Ascension Sacred Heart

At Ascension Sacred Heart, we take a personalized approach to orthopedic care. We give you the information you need to know before your joint replacement or revision surgery, including how to prepare and exercises to do.

Ask about virtual care (e.g, telehealth or online) appointments for your first consultation and as part of your ongoing care. You can have these virtual visits from the comfort of your home. You’ll be able to talk with your doctor one on one via video from your phone or computer and get the care that’s right for you.

Is it time to consider joint replacement surgery?

Joint pain can keep you from the simple things in life, such as climbing the stairs, walking outdoors on a beautiful day, or spending time with family and friends. Keeping up with daily tasks can be difficult when you have joint pain that stops you from moving.

If your joint pain is affecting your daily life, it may be time to think about joint replacement surgery.

Does your joint pain:

  • Keep you awake at night?
  • Cause you to limp when you walk?
  • Make you feel stiff and swollen?
  • Cause you to fall? How often?

If yes, surgery may be right for you.

How to get a second opinion

Whether you’re dealing with joint or back pain or you're considering surgery, there’s a lot to think about. If you’re looking for a second opinion, specialists with Performance Orthopedics and Spine are here for you.

We can help match you with the right orthopedic doctor or spine surgeon. Ask if a virtual or telehealth visit is available for your second opinion appointment.

Before your appointment, you should check with your insurance company to find out if a second opinion is covered or required. Our team can request your medical records from your doctor on your behalf, so that they can be shared with your care team before your arrival.
