SOUTH HOUSTON, Texas — November 17, 2021 — Houston Physicians’ Hospital is an award-winning surgical facility in Houston redefining health care for area residents. Recognized for outstanding achievement in patient safety, the medical facility provides individualized treatments with a concierge approach to the residents of Clear Lake, Friendswood, Webster, League City, and Galveston.
The Joint Solutions Center at Houston Physicians’ Hospital helps patients find relief from pain and discomfort from conditions associated with joint health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported that about 15 million Americans report persistent pain due to inflammation in their joints. These statistics show that approximately half of the adult population has acute joint conditions that cause daily, ongoing discomfort.
Severe joint conditions restrict mobility and affect the overall quality of life. Additionally, joint pain costs $81 billion every year in lost wages due to interruptions in work. People need the proper medical treatment that the Joint Solutions Center provides to get them back on their feet.
This South Houston hospital creates a welcoming environment for doctors, patients, and health care workers. As a result, the facility has held a top 15% rank for two consecutive years among hospitals that offer a quality patient experience.
Knee replacement surgeons and joint health specialists at Houston Physicians’ Hospital have provided superior health care services to patients who suffer from joint conditions that impact both their professional and social lives. While each patient’s condition varies, physicians have been able to discharge most cases between one and three days after surgery. The professional caregivers at the Joint Solutions Center, working with the hospital’s award-winning physical therapy team, have helped patients quickly rehabilitate, allowing them to walk on the same day as their surgery and resume their normal activities within six to 12 weeks.
“Our Joint Solutions Center has been caring for patients and facilitating their return to the activities they love with the latest in joint care,” said Heather Womack, CEO, of Houston Physicians’ Hospital. “Our state-of-the-art center leverages the expertise of leading orthopedic medicine and state-of-the-art technology, including therapy and robotic surgery, to effectively manage and eliminate joint pain as well as restore mobility. We provide patients with thorough testing incorporating X-rays, CT scans and MRI scans, and diagnostics that enable physicians to treat joint ailments with the latest treatments, from pain medication and surgical procedures to physical therapy. Our team goes the extra step to provide comfort and peace of mind through our group support program that we call Joint Camp. All these programs address both the physical as well as mental aspects of healing during the treatment process.”
Sports is one of the leading causes of joint and bone injury, and Houston Physicians’ Hospital has one of the leading sports medicine programs in Southeast Texas. Considering that more than 3.5 million sports injuries affect children through young adults annually in the United States, the program is acutely focused on restoring a patient’s physical fitness and athletic performance.
The program encompasses both general medical and specialty orthopedic care to treat musculoskeletal injuries, from muscles, bones, and joints to ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.
Apart from orthopedic and sports injury expertise, Houston Physicians’ Hospital has also gained a stellar reputation in the area for its Heart and Vascular Solutions Center, which uses cutting-edge testing technology to both diagnose and treat various heart ailments, including rheumatic heart disease, angina, congenital heart disease, arrhythmia, and peripheral vascular disease.
The hospital offers noninvasive and minimally invasive surgical procedures, including surgical implantation of pacemakers, coronary angioplasty, cardioversion, and peripheral angiography.
