If you are considering joint replacement surgery, it makes sense to choose Carilion Clinic over other hospitals. Our Joint Replacement program sets the bar as the regional leader in surgical excellence. We emphasize minimally invasive techniques and innovative approaches, including the anterior approach to hip replacement that reduces recovery time by 50 percent in almost every case.
Carilion's quality ratings are excellent; in particular we have an exceptionally low rate of complications and high patient satisfaction scores. Our inpatient orthopaedic unit has been certified since 2007 by the Joint Commission, and has received its Gold Seal of Approval™ for quality care. Our surgeons are the most experienced by far, performing the vast majority of all joint replacements in western Virginia. We perform over 2,000 hip and knee replacement surgeries each year, with an excellent outcome record.
