Experience Matters

Your experience at the Joint Care Center matters, which is why we've taken great care to combine clinical excellence with a comfortable healing environment, but there's another--equally important--meaning to "experience." The experience of your hospital and care providers also matters. According to State of Florida ACHA data, more people chose to have their knee replacement or hip replacement at Blake Medical Center in the last year than the other local hospitals combined. A lot more. If you're considering joint replacement surgery, ask your doctor how many of the procedures he or she has performed, but also ask how many are performed at your hospital of choice.
