Whether you’re a gardener, a grandparent or a golfer...

If your “one small step” feels more like a “giant leap,” it could be time to consider joint replacement surgery.

The Joint Replacement Center, part of Sparrow Orthopedic Center, offers the full continuum of care to help you return to the life and lifestyle you want. As a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network recognize that Sparrow demonstrates higher levels of performance in providing better care for patients.

Here’s what you can expect from Sparrow's Joint Replacement Center:

You and your support person meet with members of your joint care team, and learn what to expect—before, during and after surgery.
