Our Approach

Total Joint Replacement Program

Americans are enjoying longer and more active lives than ever, and almost 30 percent will experience joint pain at some point in their life.

At CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi-South’s Orthopedic Institute, the total joint replacement surgeons have extensive experience and expertise in the diseases and treatment of the hip and knee, and are experts in their field. Whether a patient needs arthroplasty, replacement, or a revision, the surgeons associated with our Orthopedic Institute’s Total Joint Replacement Program proved the most state-of-the-art procedures to return our patients to a healthy and functional lifestyle.

Our evidence-based approach to total joint care is a model which is a collaboration between our orthopedic surgeons, hospitalists, total joint patient nurse navigator, OR team, nursing, physical and occupational therapists, and hospital support staff. Better outcomes, quicker recovery and a return to normal life for patients are our top priority.
