Joint Replacement - Hip and Knee

At Valley Baptist Medical Center, we have the experience, and the technology, to make a hip or knee replacement as minimally invasive and pain-free as possible. A hip replacement or knee replacement     used to involve days in the hospital, followed by a lengthy rehabilitation process. No more.

Just how experienced  are we? Well, Valley Baptist Joint Replacement Program Medical Director Dr. Rick Bassett once performed 24 hip and knee replacements in a single week, and does more than 1,000 surgeries a year!

But while performing this type of surgery is an everyday occurrence for us, at Valley Baptist we remember that it’s your first experience with having a joint removed and replaced. It’s a big deal, and we know you have concerns and questions. We want to sit down and talk through everything with you, and make sure you know what’s going on every step of the way.

And when it’s over, we want to hear you say, “That was easy! I wish I’d had my other knee done at the same time!”

Award-winning quality. Advanced technology. That’s Valley Baptist Care.
