The Orthopedic Nursing Staff at DeKalb’s Joint Solutions Center
At the DeKalb Medical Joint Solutions Center (JSC), our nurses aren’t just trained in how to attend to your medical needs, they’re trained in helping you take those first steps with your new joint and into your new life. As part of a dynamic, dedicated orthopedic unit, all of the nurses at the Joint Solutions Center possess specialized training in total joint care.
In addition to ensuring your comfort and safety, they are an integral part of a multidisciplinary team that will help you achieve optimum mobility and performance. Your nurse will also help manage any post-surgery pain (including changing your medication if necessary) so you can receive the greatest benefit from your physical therapy and daily walks on the Georgia Sightseer Tour.
