Learn If Your Joints Are Healthy
We know that hip and knee pain can really slow you down. As we age, our bodies start changing. Certain aches and pains that didn't bother us before slowly begin getting in the way of everyday activities. This is why we created an online health risk assessment that specifically helps you find out how well your knee and hip joints are functioning. Give it a try today to assess the steps you can take towards great joint health.
Joint Replacement Program
The decision to have joint replacement surgery is a big one - one that will require the hands of a skilled surgeon and a staff who is capable of making sure you have the time and resources necessary to recover.
In addition to our affiliated surgeons, the team at the Joint Center at CHRISTUS Ochsner Lake Area Hospital is staffed by a diverse group of healthcare professionals like anesthesiologists, therapists, nurses and discharge planners who will work in tandem to make sure you and your loved ones are informed and comforted during your time with us. The goal is to educate, rehabilitate and to get you back on your feet as soon as possible following your procedure.
