Deciding to Have Knee or Hip Replacement

A decision that can change your life.
South Coast Post Acute and our skilled, 24-hour nursing team are here to help you. The most common reason to have knee or hip replacement surgery is to assuage the severe pain that limits the range of motion and ability to do activities and tasks. A specialist may recommend hip or knee replacement when:


  • Sleep or other normal activities are prevented by pain.
  • Movement is not possible on your own/you to need the aid of a walker or cane.
  • Your pain has not improved with other treatment.
  • The surgery, recovery, and post-hospital care options are thoroughly researched and understood.


Researching the best surgical and post-surgical, post-acute options
If the pain is preventing you from your normal activities, the muscles around your joints may become weaker. This may adversely affect your recovery if you wait to have surgery.

At South Coast Post Acute, we are by your side through every step of your post-hospitalization journey. With compassionate and exceptional staff, we support all of your medical and health goals. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
