Valade Gym, Education Center, and Spa
The Bone & Joint Center at St. John Hospital and Medical Center serves the needs of the metro Detroit area with a comprehensive referral program for Joint Replacement. Designed specifically for the diagnosis and treatment of joint pain, the Center has a regional reputation for its superior surgical techniques and high levels of patient satisfaction. Each of the Center’s surgeons has received years of specialized training from top medical schools and residency programs in the field of orthopedic surgery. The Center’s staff includes support staff, such as a physician assistants, registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists providing high quality care with individualized attention focused on each patient's progress.
The new “State of the Art” Valade Gym, Ecucation Center and Spa provides patients with an enhanced physical rehabilitation environment and Spa amenities. The Gym includes leading edge equipment to compliment our highly trained therapists in preparing patients for discharge. The Education Center is a vital component of the pre-operative process where patients learn what to expect and plan for prior to and after their procedure. Along with their “at-home Coaches”, patients attend class taught by a multidisciplinary team of clinicians. Our goal is to prepare patients for getting back to doing the things they love at home! In addition, the new Valade Spa provides an atmosphere of renewal, holistic healing and wellness. Patients and their “coaches” can take advantage of an array of pampering amenities such as massage therapies, manicures & pedicures, and hair styling…a total rejuvenation. To top it off, we’ll even prepare a gourmet meal for you prior to discharge.
Inpatient rehabilitation plays a vital role in a patient’s full recovery and begins the day following surgery. For patients requiring more physical therapy after discharge, St. John Hospital offers outpatient rehabilitation services and home care.
The Center’s surgeons specialize in total joint replacement for the hip, knee and shoulder, spine repair, and sports-related injuries. Together, they have performed thousands of joint procedures with excellent patient satisfaction. St. John Orthopedists are also regional leaders in the new “muscle sparing” minimally invasive hip replacement procedure. St. John is the only hospital in the region to have two specialized operating room tables to perform this leading edge procedure.
