Peninsula Regional Medical Center is proud to be the first hospital in Maryland, Delaware or Washington, DC (and just the 63rd in the nation) to earn The Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval, Disease-Specific Care Certification in Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Surgery.
The Peninsula Regional Medical Center Orthopaedic & Rehabilitation Center features a comprehensive planned course of treatment that emphasizes wellness and personal empowerment. The center has a focused team of experienced surgeons, nurses and rehabilitation therapists who have performed more than 8,500 total joint replacement surgeries and skillfully cared for each patient since pioneering the procedure in our region in the 1970’s and advancing its refinement throughout the 80s, 90s and into today.
Recovery is motivated through preparation, education, continuity of care and a pre-planned discharge. Our patients and their families are encouraged to attend a pre-operative educational session designed to inform the patient of what to expect before, during and after surgery. Our goal is to involve the patient and their families in the patient's treatment through every step of the program.
From a clinical perspective, patients benefit from a standardized clinical order pathway and routines designed to improve efficiency. Patients are treated to many amenities including large and private rooms, a unit-based rehabilitation gym and a complimentary gift to remind them of their life-enhancing experience.
The Orthopaedic & Rehabilitation Services team has set the standard for orthopaedic and rehabilitative care and pain management. This trend-setting service has also offered our patients the opportunity to experience a series of regional orthopaedic "firsts," including cartilage replacement service, minimally invasive and small incision hip and knee replacements, 2 incision hip replacement and ceramic hip replacement.
