Total Joint Replacement Program
The health center has established a total joint replacement program overseen by medical director Andrew Yun, M.D. Providence Saint John’s performs more than 1,000 procedures annually, and our patients are returning to activities they formerly thought would be impossible. The small, nearly private setting of the orthopedic unit enables patients to feel at ease with the nurses and specialists dedicated to their complete recovery. At Providence Saint John’s, our physicians are engaged with their patients’ care, which includes an education program about total joint surgery. Many patients are pleasantly surprised to find the medical director, Dr. Yun, teaching the class and taking patients into the hospital gym to show them the exercises they will do to facilitate their recovery.
The renowned Hip and Pelvis Institute, led by medical director Joel Matta, M.D., is recognized for hip replacement and for their work with patients who suffer pelvic fractures.
Under the direction of Andrew Yun, M.D., the program specializes in rapid recovery for our patients. The surgeons have received the highest awards for safety and quality.
