Grand View Health Orthopaedics Knee Surgery program recognized as “High Performing” by U.S. News and World Report for 2019-20.

Grand View Hospital has been recognized as a “High Performer” for knee surgery by U.S. News and World Report. The Best Hospitals methodology includes objective measures such as patient survival, patient safety, the quality of nursing care and the number of times a given procedure is performed when determining this designation.  Generally, it is believed that the more surgeries a team performs, the better the outcomes for patients.

“We are committed to delivering safe, quality care to our patients,” said Jean Keeler, Esq. President and CEO of Grand View Health. “This designation is a testament to our expert orthopaedic clinical and support staff at Grand View’s Joint Replacement Center which is part of Grand View Hospital in Sellersville.”

Grand View Health Orthopaedics offers comprehensive bone and joint services in addition to knee surgery, including a sports medicine program, and treatment for conditions impacting the hip, shoulder, ankle, neck and spine as well as osteoarthritis. Orthopaedic care is complemented with robust physical therapy and rehabilitation services.

In November 2018, Grand View became the first hospital in the region to offer MAKO® for patients requiring knee replacement surgery. The MAKO robotic-assisted surgery system enables the team, comprised of board-certified orthopaedic surgeons from Upper Bucks Orthopaedics at Grand View Health, to develop a 3-D virtual model of the knee which is used to determine the placement of the knee implant based on a patient’s unique anatomy.  This highly-precise approach typically leads to improved recovery with less post-operative pain.

In the Bucks and Montgomery county corridor, patients rely on Grand View Health for exceptional care for bone, joint and spine disorders. The hospital features a fully dedicated joint replacement center, an in-hospital service dedicated to helping get patients back on their feet as quickly as possible while focusing on reducing the need for painkillers.

The U.S. News Best Hospitals rankings help guide patients to hospitals that deliver outstanding care across 16 specialties and 9 procedures and conditions.
