Joint Center

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.

As one of the largest hospitals in Maryland, Holy Cross Hospital physicians perform thousands of orthopedic procedures each year, including hundreds of joint replacement surgeries. Because each person's joint pain is different, we tailor treatment plans to each individual's needs. We offer a broad range of services and procedures to help alleviate your joint pain - from mobility and exercise classes to joint replacement surgery.

The Holy Cross Hospital Joint Center is an interdisciplinary program that includes both pre- and post-operative services. The center provides a specialized program that offers a continuum of care and support throughout the joint replacement process. The goal of the center is to promote wellness and independence through patient education, a dedicated team of professionals, family involvement and group interaction. The joint center offers both traditional and alternative treatments, as well as minimally invasive techniques. Ask your physician which is best for you.

If joint replacement surgery is right for you, let us assure you that it is a common and effective procedure that can relieve pain and enable you to improve your quality of life. At Holy Cross Hospital, 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.
