Joint Health Services & Joint Care Solutions

Hurt to Walk? Let's Talk!
Call 404.501.TALK (8255) or email us at letstalk@dekalbmedical.org

From the day you decide to have surgery at the Joint Solutions Center until the day you head home, we’ll provide you with everything you need for your joint care every step of the way. We recommend your own personal orthopedic recovery “coach” who can help you get back to your life and what you love to do more quickly.

You’ll also have a Joint Program Manager, who will work with you and your doctor to coordinate your entire care experience and answer all of your questions.

During and after your knee or hip replacement, we’ll keep you as comfortable as possible with “little extras” like:

  • All private rooms
  • Unlimited visiting hours with your coach
  • Wearing your own clothes — no hospital gowns
  • Recuperating in a room with oversized recliners
  • Personal Guide Book with surgery preparation and aftercare tips
  • Educational classes for you and your coach
  • Daily walks on our 3500-foot Georgia Sightseer Tour
  • Group therapy and joint care in our Joint Gym
  • Daily New Joint Newsletters
  • Gift shop with sundries and after-surgery aids
  • Relaxing on our rooftop garden patio

Georgia Sightseer Tour

Right outside of your hospital room door is a 3500-square foot joint care walking circuit called the Georgia Sightseer Tour. We built it because experience shows that the sooner our knee and hip replacement patients start walking after surgery, the greater mobility and success they enjoy when they leave. Every 50 feet you walk, you’ll reach a new destination and level of independence as your orthopedic recovery coach and fellow patients cheer you on. Each time you step out on the Georgia Sightseer Tour, you’ll have a joint care physical therapist and/or your coach by your side to mark your progress as you race to the finish line and home.

“I never thought I could do it, but the first day after surgery I walked 100 feet and then 500 feet the next day.”

-- Beverly Brett (hip replacement)
