Joint Replacement Center

The Joint Replacement Center at Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System is the first center in Monterey County to be certified by The Joint Commission (TJC). That means we meet or exceed the national standards of care and have a top-notch team of surgeons, specially trained nurses, physical therapists and other dedicated professionals. This outstanding award recognizes Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare Systems dedication to continuous compliance with The Joint Commission's rigorous standards.

The Joint Replacement Center of Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System offers comprehensive care for people undergoing joint replacement surgery. And best of all, you can stay close to home, work, family and friends rather than traveling outside of the area for state-of-the-art care.

I lived with severe pain in my hip for ten years after a horseback riding accident ... it was difficult to walk or even bend over to tie my shoes. Today I'm pain free and can walk, even run--it's amazing.

— Ray Franscioni, Hip Replacement Patient
