Pain Management

The orthopedic team at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital is committed to making the joint replacement process as painless as possible. Significant attention is given to pain management both before and after surgery, so patients can quickly resume their normal activities.

New advancements in pain management enable some patients to become mobile just hours after surgery, which means physical and occupational therapy can begin the same day. The result is an improvement in circulation, balance, and strength, which is imperative to the healing process.

The average length of stay for joint replacement patients is just one to two days.

"After my knee-replacement surgery, I regained function almost immediately," says orthopedic patient Tish Levee. "I was going up and down stairs before I even left the hospital. I really appreciated how quickly I recovered."
