Proud to Be Part of NorthShore University HealthSystem

We're proud to be part of NorthShore University HealthSystem's Total Joint Replacement Center. The center has earned many recognitions, including:

  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield Blue Distinction Center for hip and knee replacement. Based on nationally consistent criteria, the award recognizes treatment expertise, the number of procedures performed every year and patient outcomes
  • United Health Care Center of Excellence
  • Ranked by US News & World Report as “high performing” in hip and knee replacement

Part of this success stems from NorthShore's access to clinical trials and our rapid recovery protocol, which encourages patients to get out of bed the day of hip or knee replacement surgery. This speeds healing and rehabilitation, resulting in shorter hospital stays. We're also excited about the recently renovated, state-of-the-art joint replacement units at Skokie Hospital. The unit offers a modern environment that makes the recovery process more comfortable than ever.

Additionally, our joint replacement registry helps us track outcomes and conduct research around quality improvement.
