Meet the Care Team

Your joint care team consists of:

  • Nurse navigator
  • Spouse, partner or coach
  • Surgeon and his/her staff
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Nurses
  • Physical & occupational therapists
  • Case manager/social worker

About Your Spouse, Partner or Coach:

We strongly recommend you seek out a family member or friend who can assist you as you recover from your joint replacement. Your "coach" should be ready, willing and able to help you during your rehabilitation at the hospital and when you return home. He or she can:

  • help you remember instructions related to self-care
  • help you to remember any questions you wish to ask your doctors, nurses or other caregivers
  • learn your exercise program along with you and help you to complete your exercises properly between therapy sessions
  • help set up for meals, bathing and dressing by gathering the items you need to complete these activities
  • be your supporter
