Welcome to Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital’s Joint Replacement Center of Excellence

Orlando Health South Seminole Hospital has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Hip and Knee Replacement. South Seminole Hospital underwent a rigorous onsite review by the Joint Commission where experts evaluated compliance with advanced disease-specific care standards and total hip and total knee replacement requirements, including orthopedic consultation, and pre-operative, intraoperative and post-surgical orthopedic surgeon follow-up care. Achieving the certification recognizes South Seminole Hospital’s commitment to provide care in a safe and efficient manner for patients.

Our team of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and clinical techs are committed to providing the best care possible to help patients undergoing knee or hip replacement regain their independence and quality of life.

Patients will receive inpatient care on a dedicated orthopedic unit with Orthopedic Certified Nurses and an exclusive rehabilitation team. We focus on compassionate and individualized care for every patient. Onsite inpatient rehab gym, private rooms, free WiFi and a quiet friendly atmosphere are just a few of the amenities provided.

A Multidisciplinary Approach

A team composed of healthcare professionals such as surgeons, hospitalists, anesthesiologists, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and case managers provide up-to-date, evidence-based care to our patients. Our goal is to deliver the best care and improve patient outcomes based on national standards.

Individualized Plan of Care

Our Joint Replacement Center of Excellence was designed with the patient in mind. Our multidisciplinary team will ensure that all your medical needs are covered during your hospital stay. We believe you play an integral part in your recovery.

Preparing for Joint Replacement Surgery

We offer a live, interactive pre-op class that will familiarize you and your "coach" (a loved one that will help you through your recovery) with the expectations of joint replacement surgery. The class covers topics such as how to prepare for surgery, what to bring to the hospital, needs for recovery, rehabilitation, hospital stay and discharge process.
