Total joint replacement surgeries in Middle Tennessee have increased by 23 percent during the last five years, and projections indicate that they will continue to increase another 18 percent over during the five years. To meet this need, our $25 million investment on the Saint Thomas Midtown campus will create Saint Thomas Joint Replacement Institute, the premier joint replacement program in Middle Tennessee.
Saint Thomas Health has been working with a number of joint replacement and orthopedic providers, notably Tennessee Orthopedic Alliance (TOA) and Elite Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Care in developing the Institute model for an enhanced joint replacement experience. TOA is the region’s largest orthopedic practice with more than 50 surgeons across Middle Tennessee and presence on the three major campuses of Saint Thomas Health.
Our joint replacement program is the largest in the region and is consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Through this Institute, we will maintain our leadership in joint replacement.
Renovating 94,000 square feet that will result in 8 dedicated operating rooms which will be larger and better equipped for the requirements of advanced total joint replacement procedures.
The Saint Thomas Joint Replacement Institute will enhance the patient and physician experience by creating a “single floor experience” to enhance staff collaboration and care coordination throughout patient’s entire stay.
Saint Thomas Health's orthopedic program is ranked number one in Tennessee and among the top five for orthopedics nationally.
Construction on the Midtown project is expected to begin late this summer and take approximately a year and a half to complete.
