Where to Have Surgery
Jefferson Regional Medical Center's Orthopedic Surgical Services include inpatient surgery and outpatient surgery at the adjacent Jefferson Surgery Center. These services are performed with the benefit of a low-stress environment at a community hospital that also provides high-quality, innovative care. Jefferson Regional invests in leading-edge technology. We were the first hospital in Allegheny County to invest in and use computer navigation for knee replacements. We were the first hospital to create a Joint Care Center specialized in the care of total joint patients and to create an Ortho Steering Committee to optimize all aspects of care including physical therapy, pain management, blood utilization, and nutrition.
The volume of total joint replacement surgeries performed at Jefferson Regional ranks among the top three area hospitals in Allegheny County. The overall surgical volume at Jefferson Regional exceeds its closest independent competitor by more than 20 percent. We've also been recognized for having lower costs than our competitors, helping to make health care more affordable in our region and helping to better serve our mission.
