CentraState Medical Center has once again earned The Joint Commission’s two-year accreditation for its Total Joint Program by demonstrating compliance with The Commission’s national standards for health care quality and safety in disease-specific care. The two-year certification will continue through April 2018.

The Total Joint Center of New Jersey at CentraState provides comprehensive, integrated care including a team of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, specially trained orthopedic nurses, a total joint coordinator, patient care technicians, physical and occupational therapists, dietitians, and other care providers across the continuum.

Joint Commission recognition was earned only after CentraState underwent a rigorous on-site survey by the Commission’s expert surveyor and was evaluated for compliance with standards of care specific to the needs of patients and families, including infection prevention and control, leadership, quality and performance improvement, and medication management.

“We are delighted that our Total Joints Program has been recognized by the Joint Commission. We take great pride in our commitment to helping patients return to active lifestyles and a higher quality of living through our advanced joint program,” says Alan S. Nasar, MD, board-certified orthopedic surgeon and medical director, The Total Joint Center of New Jersey at CentraState. “This certification not only speaks volumes about our orthopedic care, but about the compassionate and dedicated team of clinicians that make up our Center.”

The Center performs innovative procedures, including quad sparing knee replacement and direct anterior hip replacement, and provides an expedited recovery process where patients no longer require inpatient rehabilitation and can leave the hospital after a brief stay and recover in the comfort of their own home.

In addition to offering advanced surgical services for joint pain, The Total Joint Center also provides an array of non-surgical treatment options. These include a tailored rehabilitation program designed to increase mobility, build strength and relieve joint pain; as well as pain management.
