A Center of Excellence for hip, knee, and joint replacements
Sparrow Hospital’s inpatient center for orthopedics is recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network as a Blue Distinction Center+ for Knee and Hip Replacement. We’re also the only hospital in Mid-Michigan certified as a Center of Excellence by The Joint Commission. We’ve earned these accolades thanks to the excellent and affordable orthopedic services we provide patients like you.
The inpatient spine and orthopedic center offers comfortable, spacious surgical suites and the most advanced technological surgery systems in the region. With a dedicated, specially-trained nursing team that’s focused solely on orthopedics patients, you can rely on your care team to know exactly what you need.
Sparrow also offers Mid-Michigan’s only “total joint camp,” an educational resource for patients receiving a joint replacement, available at every Sparrow hospital. Learn everything you need to know to ensure your joint replacement is a success, while connecting with fellow patients for shared support throughout the process.
