The Orthopedic Surgery Section at Capital Health provides a full continuum of services, from pre-admission through your hospital stay to after-discharge follow-up. The department is staffed by specially trained nurses, inpatient rehabilitation specialists and other healthcare professionals trained in the care of orthopaedic patients.
As the first Mercer County hospital to perform total hip and total knee joint replacement surgery, Capital Health has decades of experience getting patients back on their feet.
Capital Health is dedicated to the treatment and recovery of patients receiving total joint replacement surgery. Approximately 200 total joint replacement surgeries are performed at Capital Health each year, and we’re on track to complete 350 cases this year alone. In total, more than 1,000 orthopaedic surgeries will be performed this year alone at the Marjorie G. Ernest Joint Replacement Center of Excellence at Capital Health Medical Center - Hopewell.
