Morristown Medical Center: The Patient Experience
Morristown Medical Center
Certified by The Joint Commission:
I had my left hip replaced last year and was very impressed with the Total Joint Replacement Program at Atlantic Rehabilitation Institute. This year, I had my right hip replaced and the care was even better. I can’t say enough good things about the staff. The physicians and nurses are knowledgeable and supportive, and the support staff couldn’t be more caring.

Joint pain doesn't have to mean chronic discomfort and disability. When the covering that allows a normal joint to move freely and painlessly is worn or damaged, the friction of bone rubbing on bone results in loss of motion and decreases a joint's weight-bearing capacity. Joint replacement removes the bone surfaces within the joint, and replaces them with synthetic materials, durable, wear-resistant plastic or metal. Most patients can look forward to resuming an active, fulfilling lifestyle following a successful procedure.
Our new minimally invasive procedures result in smaller scars, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery time and greater range of motion ' quickly getting you back on your feet.
