What Makes Us Unique

Choosing to have joint replacement surgery is a big decision. You want expert care from a team you can trust. And you want to know that after surgery, you’ll have less pain and better mobility.

Lots of hospitals and orthopedic surgeons offer knee and hip replacements. But few providers inspire confidence like Coon Joint Replacement Institute at Adventist Health St. Helena.

Orthopedic care you can count on

Aging may be inevitable, but it doesn’t have to slow you down. Since 2009, we’ve helped more than 20,000 people overcome joint pain and return to work or play. Patients choose us for joint replacement surgery because:

  • Our surgeons are leaders in their field. Our team was among the first in the nation to offer MAKOplasty® partial knee replacements—and is now at the forefront of MAKOplasty total knee replacements. Learn how we’re helping improve the safety and effectiveness of joint replacement surgery in the U.S.
  • We get you moving more quickly. Our use of spinal anesthesia keeps you comfortable during surgery with fewer post-operative side effects. This means you’re back on your feet more quickly after surgery. Data shows that the day of surgery, our hip and knee patients walk more than twice the distance required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
  • We offer one-on-one guidance. Our client services team offers free concierge-style support to anyone interested in, or getting ready for, joint replacement surgery. We’ll answer your questions, coordinate insurance authorizations and recommend transportation services or lodging.
  • We help you navigate your journey. Once your surgery is scheduled, our patient navigators will make sure you feel positive and prepared—instead of anxious and overwhelmed. Their job is to help you plan for and recover from surgery by making sure you understand what to expect throughout the entire process. For example, they’ll provide information and answer questions about your assigned exercises, pain management and living with your new joint.
  • We offer hope. At Coon Joint Replacement Institute, we’ve treated thousands of people who thought knee or hip pain was just “part of getting older” and suffered in silence. Our team believes everyone deserves to stay on their feet, no matter how advanced their age. In fact, our surgeons often treat patients who were turned away from other health systems because of their age or other factors.
  • Our doctors understand the importance of staying active. Whether you’re a golfer or beachcomber, sports and leisure activities help you stay fit and feel great. In their spare time, Dr. Moore, enjoys distance running, Alpine skiing and hiking, while Dr. Diana is an ultrarunner.
  • We’ll come to you. Want to learn more about joint replacement surgery at Coon Joint Replacement Institute? Our doctors host educational seminars throughout California and Oregon.
