We would like to introduce you to Crystal Clear Pathway, a new Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center program designed to better prepare you for your joint replacement surgery. Crystal Clear Pathway is designed specifically to allow you to have better understanding and communication before, during, and following surgery. 

Your customized care plan will assist you, your family members, and your care providers to better navigate the complexities of the hospitalization, recovery phase and rehabilitation after your operation. Crystal Clear Pathway will also provide you with valuable resources to help manage any expected or unexpected issues affecting your recovery.

Our Crystal Clear Pathway program gives you the clear advantage of the varied resources of the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center. This includes 24-hour-a-day access to your surgeon or one of the seventeen joint replacement surgery physicians of the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center. In addition, you and your family will have access to any of the eight physical therapy sites within the four-county area served by the Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center.

Our Crystal Clear Pathway Surgery Scheduler will either schedule or call you within one week of scheduling your surgery to schedule your pre-operative assessment and answer any additional questions that you may have.

Thank you for choosing Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center to help you with your joint replacement!
