The primary goals of joint replacement surgery are to relieve pain and restore mobility.

Joint replacement care at Diyos Hospital is a truly comprehensive experience; it has the entire process from evaluation through rehabilitation. Care at Diyos includes imaging, patient education, surgery and both inpatient and outpatient physical therapy. Diyos also has a skilled nursing facility, physiotherapy, which can be used to assure that any post surgery issues are completely addressed.
Healing times depend largely on the patient’s overall health, body type and lifestyle. With proper care, rest and therapy, patients heal sufficiently to return to most activities of day to day living within several weeks of their procedure. The duration of hospitalization ranges from two days for a shoulder replacement to three to five days following a knee or hip replacement.
