Life is about being active, living to the fullest and enjoying family and friends. Pain from hurting joints can mean doing less, limiting activity and missing out. But people who experience chronic, severe joint pain have many treatment options.

At Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Md., and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital in Germantown, Md., we offer a broad range of services and procedures to help alleviate your joint pain – from presurgical planning to mobility and exercise classes to joint replacement surgery. Because each person’s joint pain is different, we tailor treatment plans to each individual’s needs.

As your partner in this journey, we’re committed to setting you up for better outcomes through a full continuum of pain management, rehabilitative support, surgical expertise, and health and wellness programs that promote joint health.

Surgical Expertise
Our orthopedic surgeons perform the latest minimally invasive treatments to relieve joint pain and increase joint function while preserving – instead of replacing – as much of your natural joint and bone as possible. Arthroscopic and mini-incision techniques are used to replace and restore joints in the knee, hip, hand and shoulder. Using a multidisciplinary approach, each joint procedure is designed to meet your individual needs and help you reach your personal goals – most importantly, encouraging your independence.

A Comprehensive Medical Team
The joint program at Holy Cross Hospital and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital offers a highly qualified team of experts including orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, specially trained and caring nurses, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, licensed physical and occupational therapists, pain management specialists, pharmacists and case managers.

Joint Replacement: Making the Decision
Joint replacement surgery is a common and effective procedure that can relieve pain and improve your quality of life. The decision to have joint replacement surgery may be signifi cant, but we are here to help you through the process, from pre-surgical planning through recovery.

Because of our depth of experience and expertise, we can respond to both physical and emotional concerns with true understanding and support. You will receive one-on-one coordination of your inpatient services and support throughout the process, from admission to discharge.
