Joint replacement surgery is a complex process — which is why Valley has a dedicated orthopedic nurse navigator to guide patients through it all.
Our nurse navigator, Amanda Kelly, BSN, RN, is an experienced orthopedic nurse who works with every patient preparing for joint replacement surgery. She's their main point of contact, from their initial physician visit all the way through surgery, recovery and rehabilitation.
Nurse navigator services include:
- Answering patients' questions
- Coordinating pre-admission testing
- Evaluating patients' individual needs to establish the best discharge and recovery plan
- Ensuring seamless coordination of services throughout Valley's network
