A Joint Effort

October 01, 2012

Today’s tiny incisions and advanced techniques are transforming joint replacement, and with fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons in your neighborhood, Providence Health & Services is leading the way.

In fact, Patrice Hallak, regional director, orthopedics and neurosciences, says Providence Southern California medical centers are coordinating to offer the same level of quality, expertise and customer satisfaction. “We are sharing our proven techniques for getting people back to a productive lifestyle as quickly as possible,” she says.

All five Providence medical centers offer minimally invasive hip, knee and shoulder replacement, with total ankle replacement also available at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center. From free preoperative seminars to advanced pain-control techniques to rehabilitation, Providence is with you every step of the way.

“Because of advances in surgical techniques as well as pain management, patients have less pain, faster healing and a faster return to normal function than they used to with conventional methods,” says Ramin Ganjianpour, MD, chief of the division of orthopedic surgery at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center.
