Arthroscopic Surgery at Jefferson Hospital

The Orthopaedic Surgery Program at Jefferson Hospital has been recognized as one of the best in western Pennsylvania because of the quality and diversity of our services, and our focus on the comfort and convenience of our patients.

Our services include inpatient and outpatient, medical and surgical care of orthopaedic-related issues, including trauma, degenerative joint disease, occupational medicine, sports injury, nerve entrapment, spinal and congenital issues.

Joint Comfort Program

The Join Comfort Program Can Help Ease Pain Through Exercise and Nutrition Education

Orthopedic specialists report a growing number of men and women in their 40s, 50s and 60s who regularly experience agonizing joint pain.

If you’ve given up on the gym because you’re too busy with work, if your knees are bothering you since you’ve put on that extra 10 pounds, if you have discomfort from arthritis in your shoulders or hips, this program at Jefferson Hospital can give you some relief.

Jefferson’s Joint Comfort Program is designed to relieve pain, help take stress off joints and strengthen areas of discomfort through a two-phase course of treatment with referral from your physician.

A one-on-one evaluation performed by a physical therapist begins a four- to six week program incorporating an aquatic and land regimen. This program will be instructed by the physical therapist or physical therapy assistant while monitoring the participant’s past medical history. The program will consist of exercise, flexibility, stabilization, strength, resistance, and endurance training.

It also incorporates nutritional education, including a one-on-one evaluation and nutritional plan for lifestyle modification and weight management. A Registered Dietician will provide evaluation of nutritional status and plan an individualized program that will help meet the goals of the participant. The Registered Dietician will provide continued follow-up and support with the participant, meeting on a regular basis and providing referrals to additional weight management and wellness programs at Jefferson Hospital.
The Joint Comfort Program takes into consideration patients’ individual insurance coverage. The program is intended for people with a confirmed diagnosis and who have seen an orthopedic physician who recommends treatment.
