Program updated to match your rate of recovery

Technology enabled, supported by medical team

We have been successfully delivering our Patient Partner Program to thousands of satisfied hip and knee patients since 2017. One of the highlights of our program is you get to recover in the comfort of your own home via telemedicine, while maintaining ongoing support from your medical team.

Your surgeon and Patient Partner work closely together to design your individual program and deliver your specific education and exercise activities. Our just in time approach ensures you get the right information, at the right time along your journey.
