Here’s what you should know about SSM Health Orthopedics:
We deliver quality care: Our infection rates are below the national benchmarks for elective knee and hip replacement patients. And, after knee replacement, about 80% of patients are able to walk the same distance as prior to surgery by the time they are discharged from the hospital. 90% of patients recommend our hospitals for their inpatient orthopedic care.
We have experienced orthopedic surgeons: Our board-certified and fellowship- trained orthopedic surgeons at the SSM Health hospitals are leaders for joint replacement surgery in the St. Louis region. They surpass the elite level of 50 procedures a year, a national benchmark for expertise. For our patients, that means better results with fewer complications and shorter hospital stays.
