Hospital program meets the needs of the growing demand for Joint Replacement Surgery
The Danbury Hospital Joint and Spine Institute recently launched the Total Joint Program as part of its ongoing commitment to offer the most advanced surgical expertise for replacement surgeries, to enhance patient experience, and to improve overall patient outcomes. OrthoConnecticut surgeons Dr. Robert Deveney and Dr. John Dunleavy are pleased to be part of the team that offers state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment and helps patients return to significantly improved mobility and quality of life.
Dr. Dunleavy and Dr. Deveney have served as part of a team of area physicians helping to establish the protocols for Danbury Hospital’s Total Joint standardized care plan. “We are pleased to offer our patients comprehensive, personalized care from the beginning of their journey through to their recovery,” said Total Joint Specialist, Dr. John Dunleavy.
Danbury Hospital cares for over 900 total joint patients each year and patient education has always been a core focus. The patient care plan includes a mandatory pre-op class, early mobility, access to less invasive surgical techniques, pain management resources and standardized care for optimal patient recovery.
The Joint and Spine Institute’s Total Joint Program at the Hospital has a dedicated unit with 12 private patient rooms and a specialized team of nurses, physical and occupational therapists. This environment gives patients the confidence they need to feel secure going into surgery. Educating the patient about all aspects of the care is an essential part of the caregiver’s directive and customizing care is a top priority. Both emotional and physical needs are addressed at the outset and throughout the care spectrum.
OrthoConnecticut is excited to continue their work with Danbury Hospital’s Total Joint Program as part of the core specialty team ready to meet the demands of the aging population and the growing need for replacement surgery in our community.
