Providence Total Joint Program

Value of care

Experience matters and Providence performs more total joint replacement surgeries than any other health system in Oregon. That experience translates into excellent outcomes for our patients. In fact, studies show that our total joint replacement patients are happier, healthier and stronger after surgery than patients at many other facilities

Proven quality of care

Hips and knees: Providence presents a standardized program for hip and knee replacements – designed by orthopedic specialists to provide highly coordinated, personal care from pre-surgery to recovery. This program has been proven to result in:

  • Peace of mind. You’re in good hands: Providence performs the most joint replacement surgeries in Oregon, resulting in consistent, positive results and better patient experiences(1). 
  • A better experience: Providence’s patient satisfaction scores are among the highest in the nation (2). We consistently receive positive feedback from patients. As one patient said, “The timeline of my experience that day was so impressive. It still seems hard to believe that I was walking on a new hip less than 12 hours after being admitted to the hospital."
  • Going home sooner: Our patients typically experience a shorter length of stay than the national average. Most are able to return directly home without interim care at a skilled nursing facility(1). 
  • A faster return to the activities you enjoy: Our total knee and hip replacement patients report functional improvement ratings just three months after their surgeries that are equivalent to national standards expected six months after surgery(3).

Shoulders, ankles and other joints: Patients that receive other joint replacements from Providence also benefit from our highly-experience specialists and a coordinated experience of care focused on getting you home, healed and happy. 

When you choose Providence, we'll work with you to help you go home sooner and get back to the activities you enjoy.
