When it comes to repairing or replacing the hip and knee joints, experience matters.
That’s why hundreds of patients come to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital for hip and knee surgeries each year. Our board certified orthopedic surgeons are some of the most internationally renowned specialists, having designed many of the devices used in hospitals across the nation and around the world.
That experience has earned Lutheran General Hospital the Blue Cross Center of Excellence distinction for Knee and Hip Replacement surgery. Patients can also count on our superior safety measures which result in substantially fewer surgical site infections than the National Healthcare Safety Network rate and low post-operative complication rates.
Our multidisciplinary team features board certified orthopedic doctors, physical therapy and rehabilitation specialists, advanced nurse practitioners, and a staff of highly trained and seasoned orthopedic nurses, many certified by the Orthopaedic Nursing Certification Board. Lutheran General Hospital has also earned Magnet status for nursing excellence, which translates to exceptional nursing care.
