Grand Opening of the New Orthopedic Center In Princeton

PRINCETON (WOAY) —Princeton Community Hospital is changing the way patients and their families think about and experience joint replacement surgery with the introduction of The Orthopedic Center, a comprehensive program that is based on a national best practice model for hip and knee replacements and structured around the fundamental principles of wellness.

During the last 10 years, the number of people over 65 receiving hip replacements increased by more than 35 percent, while the number receiving knee replacements increased by more than 70 percent. By 2030, eight times as many knee replacements will be performed as today.

The earliest Baby Boomer turned 65 in 2010.

Fortunately, Baby Boomers are more active than their parents and want to keep their active lifestyle. They also have higher expectations of service, demanding more innovative, personalized health care programs with a focus on wellness, not simply restoring health.

We hope to see you at the Grand Opening. Please come and bring a friend.
