At Orthopedic Associates, we are committed to providing you with superior access to exceptional care. That’s why we proudly offer a dedicated nurse navigator so that you can receive the exceptional care and support you deserve throughout your entire outpatient joint replacement experience.
WHAT IS A NURSE NAVIGATOR?
A nurse navigator is an orthopedic nurse who provides patients with education and support throughout their joint replacement journey. They serve as a main contact person to patients and can provide:
- Community resources to patients and family
- Pre-op and post-op information
- Help with discharge planning
SUPERIOR ACCESS TO EXCEPTIONAL SUPPORT

- Be a resource to you and your family / recovery caregiver
Our nurse navigator will meet with you before surgery as well as visit you at our state-of-the-art surgical facility. They will also contact you after you leave our facility to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
