Baptist Health Corbin becomes Orthopedic Center of Excellence
New advanced research has found that by simply starting a patient on medication before surgery allows the patient to experience less pain and recover much faster. This also shortens the length of stay in the hospital. On average patients stay 3 days in the hospital.
The Orthopedic Center of Excellence will provide patients with one stop shopping; registration, education and lab work. Patients can receive rehabilitation while at Baptist. To help patients recover, Body Recall is offered each semester. It is an exercise class that allows you to work at your own pace to meet personal goals. It can be as simple as you choose. Baptist Health Corbin is the only hospital in the region to offer Orthopedic Center of Excellence service.
