Center for Joint Replacement

The human body’s joints can wear away for a number of reasons. Arthritis, injuries and even some diseases can all affect joints. Damaged joints can lead to pain, stiffness and immobilization.

The Center for Joint Replacement at Loma Linda University Medical Center specializes in total joint care. That means every patient is put in the hands of a multidisciplinary team comprised of physicians, nurses and physical therapists who collaborate to create a specialized treatment plan for you. Loma Linda University Medical Center's ongoing research and use of the best prosthesis, least traumatic surgical techniques and most successful rehabilitation programs provides an all-encompassing program. This is accomplished through ongoing research, least traumatic surgical techniques and successful rehabilitation programs. Our staff then works tirelessly to explain your plan to you from the pre-operation preparation all the way through post-operative exercise.
