Our Specialty Areas
Total Joint Replacement
Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.
Stephens County Hospital has been awarded a Certification of Distinction in Total Joint Replacement – knee and hip by the Joint Commission. To achieve certification, Stephens County Hospital is required to demonstrate compliance in consensus-based national standards as well as consistent use of appropriate, evidence-based clinical practices for hip and knee replacement.
Minimally Invasive Gynecology (COEMIG)
Gynecological issues are unique to a woman’s world and require specialized care and understanding. Stephens County Hospital has been recognized as an American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) Center of Excellence in Minimally Invasive Gynecology Surgery also known as COEMIG. The goal of the COEMIG program is to improve patient safety and satisfaction and increase access to minimally invasive gynecologic procedures. These procedures routinely lead to better patient outcomes and shorter recovery times – and are often times offered as same-day procedures.
