Our Orthopedic Program provides comprehensive acute inpatient rehabilitation services and medical management to meet the needs of individuals following:
Complicated Joint Replacements
Other Orthopedic Complications or Revisions.
The program offers a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation with the goal of helping the individual to return to the highest level of function and independence.
As a leader in rehabilitative care, JFK Johnson’s team of professionals works with the patient and family to set short- and long-term treatment goals for recovery. In order to meet the unique needs of patients recovering from an orthopedic condition, we have specially trained staff to manage the physical and emotional needs of each patient:
Our physicians help to manage medical problems by communication with referring surgeons and consultations, as needed; with physicians to ensure effective medical treatment and continuity of care to gauge progress, address wound and pain management issues, offer education about risk factors and injury prevention, and identify needs for equipment and orthotic devices.
Our therapists are continually trained in the latest advances in the treatment of individuals who have sustained an orthopedic injury and use the latest advances in orthopedic rehabilitation. They are skilled in the use of a variety of assistive devices and adaptive equipment to help each patient be as independent as possible, while still maintaining post-surgical precautions.
Our staff also include certified rehabilitation registered nurses (CRRN), guaranteeing that you and your family can feel confident in your rehab nurse’s level of expertise.
Our team is uniquely positioned to work with you and your family and help determine the next level of therapy within our comprehensive system upon discharge from the acute inpatient rehabilitation program. Once inpatient goals have been reached, patients can be referred to a variety of outpatient programs, including JFK Johnson’s own outpatient orthopedic rehabilitation program offered at various sites. We offer a continuum of care to serve you along your entire journey to recovery.
