St. John's Peak Joint Replacement Center

The Peak Joint Replacement program at St. John’s Medical Center offers total joint replacement for hips, knees, and shoulders. Launched in 2011, the program follows standards and best practice models recommended by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. We have customized our program to meet the unique needs of our community and ensure that our patients have the best experience possible.

Key features that distinguish the experience our patients have at St. John’s include:

• Development of clinical pathways that help to ensure consistent quality, reduce risk of blood clots and infection, and provide advanced pain management
• Adoption of the World Health Organization’s surgical safety checklist
• Global positioning system (GPS) technology for joint replacement surgery, which assists the surgeon in the correct placement of the implant
• Hospital staff trained to provide complementary therapies, such as comfort massage, aromatherapy, and Healing Touch, to improve the patient’s experience and outcome
• Inpatient group or individual rehab therapy program specifically designed to get patients back to their active lifestyles
• Comprehensive patient education, including a class in which patients and caregivers can learn about the entire process, meet the joint replacement team, and ask questions
