Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement
Memorial Hermann Orthopedic & Spine Hospital has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement. It is the first hospital in Houston to earn this advanced certification, which is given to Joint Commission-accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers seeking to elevate the quality, consistency and safety of their services and patient care.
The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Knee Replacement was established in 2016 and is awarded for a two-year period. The advanced certification was developed in response to the growing number of patients undergoing total hip or total knee replacement surgery, as well as the increased focus on clinical evidence-based patient care as it relates to pain management, quality of life issues, functional limitation in mobility and the return to normal daily activities.
I Waited Way Too Long to Resolve Knee Pain
The nagging pain in both of Rennie Swift’s knees began about 15 years ago. Looking for relief, Rennie had arthroscopic knee surgery on both knees, which helped with his pain for several years. “The pain returned with a gusto,” he admits. “Especially, the right knee.”
The pain became so severe that Rennie began to limp. As an educator at Memorial Hermann who conducts employee training, he is constantly on his feet, putting pressure on his knees. “Both my knee joints began to grind bone-on-bone, developing bone spurs around the edges,” he recalls. “I had to find a solution.”
Total Knee Replacement: Now I Can Enjoy More Family Fun
“My life turned around dramatically after total knee replacement surgery on both knees,” explains Gustavo Ayala, MD, who had the procedure done on both knees at the same time. “Now I can enjoy more family fun, and I am too young to give up those wonderful memories.”
