Your Experience with Our Center for Joint Surgery
The Center features eight private suites designed with patient comfort in mind. Prior to checking in for a procedure, patients are given a full tour of the unit, preoperative education sessions, and personal meetings with therapists and nurses.
You'll also meet with your surgeon, who will be in direct contact with you for the entirety of your treatment process. Patients also work with a nurse navigator, who assists in scheduling appointments and ensures a convenient and positive experience.
Upon discharge, and again six weeks post-surgery, we ask our patients to complete satisfaction surveys. With these, we monitor the preoperative admission process, staff courtesy and helpfulness, room cleanliness, equipment ratings, pain management, transition, progress, and more. This allows us to grow and excel in our ability to provide a level of care that exceeds our patients' expectations.

Your Joint Surgery Options on the Eastern Shore
Knee Replacement Surgery in Berlin, MD
Our surgeons provide some of the most advanced knee replacement procedures
Visionaire Patient-Matched Technology uses MRIs to create custom surgery instrumentation for knee replacement.
This results in a more precisely placed implant and less time in surgery
because it is "fitted" to match the patient's knee anatomy.
Visionaire works hand-in-hand with
Verilast Knee Replacement technology, which addresses the issue of implant wear. With potentially
longer-lasting implants, patients could enjoy the benefits of knee replacement
without fearing the possibility of follow-up surgery in less than 10 years.
In other words: if you need knee replacement surgery on the Eastern Shore,
call Atlantic General Hospital.
Eastern Shore Hip Surgery
Another cutting-edge procedure,
Birmingham hip resurfacing, is a powerful solution for young or active patients because it does not
require a full replacement of the hip. Instead, it uses a metal plate
and socket placed on the femoral ball (much like a tooth crown) in order
to restore pain-free movement.
Our hip surgery specialists in Berlin, MD also provide traditional and
arthroscopic surgery, depending on each patient's needs. Our award-winning
surgeons are equipped to provide total hip replacement, hip resurfacing,
minimally-invasive solutions, and a host of other procedures to get our
patients moving fearlessly and without pain.
Arthroscopic Surgery in Worcester County, MD
As a minimally-invasive procedure, arthroscopic surgery provides patients
with an outpatient procedure that restores mobility with minimal recovery
time. Patients have access to award-winning Berlin arthroscopic surgeons
for their hips, knees, or shoulders.
