Joint Replacement Surgery

Considering joint replacement surgery? We know it may seem overwhelming. That's why at South Baldwin Regional Medical Center, our joint replacement program is designed to make the journey a little easier.

We offer the following joint replacement procedures:

  • Total Hip Replacement
  • Total Knee Replacement
  • Partial Knee Replacement
  • Shoulder Replacement

Anterior Hip Replacement

Many people suffering with arthritis and hip pain/stiffness now may be candidates for a less invasive hip replacement procedure – the anterior approach. This surgical option may mean a shorter recovery period and quicker return to daily lifestyle than with most traditional hip replacement procedures. The anterior approach allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side) or posterior (back) approach. From the front, the most important muscles for hip function – the gluteal muscles that attach to the pelvis and femur – are left undisturbed and, therefore, do not require a healing process.

Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement

South Baldwin Regional Medical Center offers robotic-assisted surgical options for both knee and hip surgery. Robotic-assisted surgical treatments offer solutions for adults who are affected by medical conditions such as mid-stage and advanced osteoarthritis.

Because robotic-assisted joint surgery is less invasive, patients have the potential to experience reduced pain, regain motion, and return to their daily activities quicker.

Other potential benefits include:

  • Less bleeding, pain and scarring
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Faster recovery

South Baldwin Regional Medical Center is the only hospital offering this technology in Baldwin County.

Why Choose Us

In an effort to provide patients with a high-quality, personalized program, we are continuously evaluating and measuring our performance. South Baldwin Regional Medical Center's orthopedic services team meets regularly with a focus on maintaining clinical and service expectations in all aspects of your joint replacement experience.

Led by the joint care coordinator, our team has been hand-picked for their positive attitudes, motivational skills and a desire to provide outstanding service. In addition, they have been specially trained to provide comprehensive clinical care for patients undergoing these important procedures.

The Orthopaedic Center approach to joint replacement surgery encompasses wellness, early mobility, family involvement, education, personal responsibility, group interaction and minimally-invasive and rapid-recovery techniques.

With improvements in surgical techniques and post-operation care, it is now common for many patients to be able to go home from the hospital after two or three days. If you have both knees replaced at the same time, your stay can be a day or two longer. Of course each patient is different, but the goal should be for you to recover in the comfort and privacy of your own home as soon as possible.

South Baldwin Regional Medical Center's orthopedic approach includes:

  • Private rooms with bathroom attached
  • Group physical therapy - patients can support and encourage each other on the road to recovery
  • Rehabilitation room located down the hall from patient rooms
  • Exercise and therapy provided in a group setting
  • Casual clothes - no hospital gowns for this crowd
  • Family and friends participating as coaches in the recovery process
  • Community outreach seminars
  • An informative pre-operation class for patients and your family
  • A patient guidebook that explains your surgery step-by-step
  • Daily newsletter delivered with your breakfast letting you know the day's agenda, along with tips for caring for your new joint
