Outcomes

“There is a better quality of life waiting for you, you just have to take the first step.”
Beverly S Ruppert, PA-C, Coon Joint Replacement Institute

Even though joint replacement surgery is less invasive than it used to be, it’s still a major medical procedure. That’s why you should carefully consider who will perform your knee or hip replacement, and where it will take place.

Coon Joint Replacement Institute at Adventist Health St. Helena is known for providing care that is safe, effective and innovative. Our long-term data proves that after surgery, our patients walk farther, go home sooner and have lower infection rates.

We also ask our patients to rate their experience by filling out satisfaction surveys. Among other qualities, most respondents report they were happy with their access to care and found it easy to communicate with Coon Joint Replacement Institute providers and office staff.

Understanding patient outcomes

In the healthcare field, someone’s “outcome” refers to whether their health improved after having a medical or surgical treatment.

We track how well our patients do while they’re in the hospital and after they go home. This data shows whether we’re meeting important quality and safety standards set by the government, insurance companies and other organizations. And it helps us make sure every patient who chooses the Coon Joint Replacement Institute for joint replacement has a positive experience.

The results speak for themselves. Thanks to our excellent outcomes, our program is consistently ranked among the nation’s top performing centers for joint replacement.
