Hip and Knee Joint Replacement
Hip and Knee Pain Dinner Seminar
You're invited to a FREE dinner on April 27 to learn from Community orthopedic surgeon, Zach Ongwijitwat, MD, about the latest non-surgical and surgical treatment options for your hip and knee pain. Additionally, our Joint Care Coordinator will share what to expect when having hip or knee joint replacement surgery at Community's Center for Joint Health.
Center for Joint Health
Now available at Community Howard Regional Health
The Center for Joint Health is a specialized unit at Community Hospitals North, East, South and Howard/Kokomo dedicated to hip and knee joint replacement patients. The unit focuses on the entire patient experience, with the goal of getting patients back to doing the things they enjoyed before being sidelined by joint pain.
Alongside a joint care coordinator, physical therapist, nurse and social worker, patients are navigated through the surgical and rehabilitation process from beginning to end - including their transition out of the unit and back home.
Excellence in hip and knee care
Community Hospitals North and East are certified in total hip and knee replacement by The Joint Commission.
