New Rochelle, NY (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Joint Solutions, the Sound Shore Medical Center's dedicated solution for orthopedic replacement surgery, is now open for business. The new center streamlines the process of knee and hip replacement surgery and improves quality of life for patients every step of the way.
The staff at Joint Solutions are selected from Sound Shore Medical Center's exceptional orthopedic surgeons, including program director and chief of orthopedics, Stephen Zelicof, MD PhD. Working exclusively with joint replacement patients, these professionals practice a specially-designed program of preparation, surgery, and recovery that emphasizes wellness and comfort. Sound Shore Medical Center designed this program to prepare patients for the facts of their upcoming procedure, as well as allay any fears or concerns.
Not only did Sound Shore Medical Center build the Joint Solutions Center with a focus on informative personal care and recovery techniques, but they also provide the features necessary for the fastest possible recovery and rehabilitation. The unit features an en-suite rehabilitation center just steps from patient rooms and the staff are trained to assist post-surgical patients to achieve the new mobility their joint replacement affords.

Featuring 252 beds, teaching facilities, and the on-campus Schaffer Extended Care center for short-term rehabilitation patients, the hospital continues to provide the region with fully-accredited medical care solutions.
