Joint Surgery Outcomes


Surgery Outcomes - How Well Do St. Mary's Patients Recover?

Since the inception of the Joint Replacement Solutions program at St. Mary's, outcomes show that 85% of our patients have been discharged directly home following their hospital stay. 

Ambulation distances have tripled. Length of stay has decreased; our average patient spends less than three days in the hospital following surgery.  Patient range of motion measurements and ability to perform a straight leg raise by the time of discharge has markedly improved.  Patients and physicians have been extremely pleased with the program also, as shown by our exceptional satisfaction ratings.
