BACKGROUND: The Joint Solutions Center (JSC) is a one-of-a-kind joint replacement center that opened in Atlanta in 2009. A destination center for superior performance, patients who have joint replacement surgery here are returning to a life of little to no pain within six months or less following surgery. 

  • The JSC is a Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Distinction Center for hip and knee replacement
  • The JSC patient satisfaction rate is 100 percent (Marshall | Steele Outcome Data Sept. 2011)
  • The JSC is 5-Star rated for Overall Orthopedics and Spine Surgery (2011, 2012) by HealthGrades™.
  • The JSC is dedicated inpatient unit just for joint replacement patients and all staff (rehab, nursing, doctors) have received special training in the care of joint replacement patients

VISUALS: There will be very compelling video and photo opportunities -- dancing, performing -- demonstrating how hip and knee replacements restore patients' active lifestyles. Interviews will be available with the local patients and clinical staff of award-winning Joint Solutions Center, a Marshall | Steele center of excellence.
