Special Programs

Joint replacement program

The Joint Replacement Program is a free education class, or “joint camp,” for patients to learn what to expect before, during and after surgery and how to prepare ahead of time to help ensure the best outcome possible. This program is offered in Concord, Keene, Lebanon, Manchester, and Nashua.

Autologous chondrocyte implantation (Keene)

In this procedure, cartilage cells are taken from the knee, grown in a lab until millions of cells have multiplied; the cells are then implanted into the area of cartilage damage.
