Joint Replacement Center marks anniversary

It has been 10 years since Heartland Orthopedic Specialists and Alomere Health (formerly Douglas County Hospital) joined in launching the Joint Replacement Center.

The JRC, staffed by Heartland's orthopedic surgeons, averages more than 600 joint replacements annually. In all, more than 5,000 successful joint replacements have been performed.

"At the JRC, we developed a unique, integrated, professional approach," said Mike Doyle, administrative director for Heartland Orthopedic Specialists. "It's truly a team approach that has persisted in providing demonstrably excellent care for our patients."
