At St. Anthony’s Medical Center, we treat more than 3,500 patients each year for a wide range of orthopedic conditions and injuries, from bone fractures and shoulder dislocations to hip resurfacing, back pain surgery and total joint replacement. Our total hip and knee replacement program is one of the largest programs of its kind in the region.
St. Anthony’s has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement Certification. The Gold Seal of Approval® is a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to providing safe and effective patient care.
Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with national disease-specific care standards as well as with total hip and total knee replacement-specific requirements. Clinical practice guidelines and performance measures also were assessed.
