Hip and knee replacement surgery

How we'll handle your care

What are the things you love doing most? Whether it’s playing with your grandchildren, biking, gardening or something else, don’t let knee or hip pain get in the way. 

If you’re in need of treatment for a new or ongoing condition, including severe joint pain or osteoarthritis, Geisinger’s Destination Medicine Joint Program can help you get back to a pain-free life with surgical and nonsurgical treatment options.

When you work with the specialists in our Joint Program for hip replacement or knee replacement surgery, you’ll work with a team of providers, including joint surgeons, internal medicine physicians and physical or occupational therapists. Depending on your needs, our team may refer you to additional specialists — so you get the most comprehensive and personalized care possible. 

Our joint surgery program provides you with top-quality care from some of the best surgeons in the field. If you work for a participating employer, they cover all medical services, your travel and lodging for qualifying procedures.

While most patients are not responsible for any copays or coinsurance, some may be responsible for certain costs. Discuss your benefit structure with your employer and health insurance provider to understand your costs.
