Lower Infection Rates After Surgery

Artificial joints don’t provide the same natural immunity as your body’s own joints against harmful bacteria. At NorthShore, our orthopaedic care team provides thorough follow-up care and education to help patients avoid infections that may potentially damage the area surrounding the new joint.

Our infection rates are impressively low. Cases of post-operative infection after total knee and hip replacement at NorthShore are less than half the CMS national averages.
