Joint Care. Made Better.

Before we replace your knee, we make sure you have plenty of support. Getting you ready for joint replacement surgery means giving you every kind of support imaginable. From comprehensive education for both you – our patient – and family members, to an orthopedic surgery team that’s part of BJC HealthCare’s commitment to bringing you some of the world’s best medicine.

The Joint Center of Excellence at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital and Progress West Hospital will be with you Every Step of the Way.

We’ve created a one-of-a-kind program, based on the best thinking of advanced joint centers across the country. The Joint Center of Excellence at Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital and Progress West Hospital was built with one goal in mind: making joint care better for you.

Our goal is to improve the health and wellness of our patients by providing comprehensive, compassionate care through our Joint Center of Excellence. Our approach to joint replacement is so thorough that the only question you’ll have is, “Why did I wait so long?”

We’re going to make a great team. So let’s get started! For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 636.928.WELL (636.928.9355) or toll-free 800.392.0936.
