If you have questions about orthopedic surgery, we have answers. Simply e-mail us through our Contact Us Form (be sure to select "Orthopedic Surgery" underneath the Comment section).
If you are unsure that surgery is right for you, we invite you to join us for one of our free screening events or community talks with our team at the Marjorie G. Ernest Joint Replacement Center of Excellence at Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell.
“Miracles do happen and this one happened at Capital Health.”
If you have problematic or painful arms or hands, Capital Health occupational therapists/certified hand therapists will lead a discussion on helpful tips to improve your functional ability.
You will not be as active the first few weeks after surgery which increases your risk for blood clots. Your doctor may prescribe a medication (known generically as an anticoagulant) to prevent you from developing blood clots.
