• A skilled, experienced orthopaedic surgeon who is accessible and happy to discuss your questions or concerns.
• A caring support team dedicated to speeding your recovery and return to normal daily activities.
• Access to all UHealth medical sub-specialties and the University of Miami Tissue Bank, one of the most reputable in the U.S.
• A private room at University of Miami Hospital, the region’s first university-owned, multi-specialty, acute-care hospital.

Our Exclusive Joint Camp Helps Patients Get Better, Faster

The University of Miami Hospital Joint Camp creates a positive environment so patients can return to active, pain-free lives.
An innovative and fun patient rehabilitation and recovery program, Joint Camp emphasizes wellness and uses a group approach to promote teamwork and camaraderie.
Joint Camp shortens the amount of time it takes for the patient to get out of bed, feel better and return home. The program has two components:

Pre-Surgery Orientation

A comprehensive Pre-Op Class for patients and families gets you acquainted with your team. You’ll receive detailed information and instructions, and learn everything you need to know about admission, surgery, discharge, and rehabilitation.

You and your family will meet the therapists, nurses and social workers who will answer your questions and guide you through the process.

Post-Surgery Recovery

The Uiversity of Miami Hospital Joint Program creates an atmosphere of wellness, where patients focus on living well and recovering from surgery. Patients wear casual attire, not hospital gowns. Rehabilitation is intense but fun because most of it is conducted in a group setting.
