Using the latest reconstruction and replacement procedures for knees and hips

Watch to learn about our Center for Joint Reconstruction and Replacement.

Fox Valley's Joint Replacement Leader

The Center for Joint Reconstruction and Replacement at Rush-Copley is designed to serve the needs of patients seeking reconstruction or replacement of knee and hip joints that are deteriorating.

Surgical procedures to rebuild or replace joints, also called arthroplasty, replace a patient’s natural worn and weak joint with an artificial one usually made of plastic, metal and/or ceramic.The time to consider treatment is when your quality of life is impacted due to severe pain and stiffness and a reduction in the activities you previously enjoyed.

Certified Program

Rush-Copley Medical Center's total joint replacement for hip and knee has earned the Gold Seal of Approval™ for healthcare quality from The Joint Commission.  Rush-Copley was the first hospital in the Fox Valley area to receive Disease-Specific Care Certification by The Joint Commission for total joint replacement in knees/hip and one of only a handful in the state of Illinois.

Joint Endeavors

Designed for patients having Total Hip Replacement or Total Knee Replacement, Joint Endeavors is a class that offers information on preparing for and recovering from joint replacement surgery.

You will meet members of your care team, see any medical equipment that will be used, and learn what to expect during your hospital stay. There will be plenty of time to address any other concerns you may have as well.

We encourage all prospective patients to bring a significant other/family member as well so they are aware of what to expect as you recover from your surgery.

Are You a Candidate?

Joint reconstruction or replacement can help you regain lost mobility and return you to a more active lifestyle. If you think you may benefit from surgery, consider the following:

  • Are you limited in getting around?
  • Do you have constant pain, aching and/or stiffness in your joints?
  • Do you avoid activities that will require you to stand or walk for a period of time?
  • Is walking difficult and/or painful?

For patients that are interested in improving their quality of life through the enhanced mobility a joint replacement or reconstructive procedure can provide we encourage you to attend one of our ongoing informational programs.
