Hip and Knee Surgical Teams

If you have been placed on the surgical waitlist for joint replacement, you will be assigned an orthopaedic surgeon that will perform your surgery. Each surgeon works with a team comprised of a medical office assistant and nurse case manager to ensure patients are prepared for surgery and have a successful recovery.
