Joint University at Weiss Memorial Hospital on Chicago’s North Side is Unlike Any Other Joint Replacement Program Because:

  • JU is Joint Commission accredited for hip and knee replacements.
  • It provides an environment that emphasizes wellness and maximizes recovery efforts through education, a culture of early mobility, family involvement and group interaction.
  • It offers the latest minimally invasive and rapid-recovery techniques in hip and knee replacement surgery, including advanced analgesic techniques to decrease post-operative pain and nausea, as well as cosmetic wound-closure techniques.
  • It takes a long-term view of the patient experience, offering follow-up calls tracking patient satisfaction with the process.

What Puts Joint University at the Head of the Class?

Because we are a leader in innovative minimally invasive joint replacement surgical techniques, many of our patients travel from throughout the United States to receive the specialized joint replacement care available only at Weiss.
