Thinking of Joint Replacement?
Joint replacement has helped many people suffering from osteoarthritis achieve a better quality of life, free from pain. Today, more than 400,000 total knee and total hip replacements are performed annually in the United States. The decision to have any type of surgery should be discussed with both your physician and family.

What is the Total Joint Center?
The Total Joint Center is a special unit at Ogden Regional Medical Center dedicated to the care of patients with total knee or total hip replacements.

Our environment emphasizes wellness, socialization, and maximizes patient recovery efforts and offers the following additional benefits:
- Dedicated caregivers who specialize in the care of patients with total joint replacement.
- Education for family and friends who may participate as “coaches” in the recovery process.
- An emphasis on a wellness environment that supports a speedy recovery and return to an active lifestyle.
- Our intensive rehabilitation prepares you and your coach for a safe transition from discharge to home.
- Group activities that supplement your individualized care.
The Total Joint Center places great emphasis on patient education and supporting the patient before, during and after surgery to enhance healing at every stage.
Blue Distinction® Centers met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Blue Distinction® Centers+ also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable healthcare. Individual outcomes may vary. National criteria is displayed on www.bcbs.com. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area. To find out which services and providers (including hospital based physicians) are covered under your policy, or to learn about Local Blue Plan Criteria, contact your Local Blue Plan; and contact your provider before making an appointment to verify its current Network and Blue Distinction Centers status. Each hospital’s Cost Index is calculated separately, based on data from its Local Blue Plan. Hospitals in portions of CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in areas served by two Local Blue Plans, resulting in two Cost Index figures; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether all hospitals in these areas must meet Blue Distinction Centers+ national criteria for one or both Cost Index figures. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for damages, losses, or non-covered charges resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
