Depuy’s Online Resources Arm Patients with Knowledge
Updated Web Sites Help Meet Growing Need for Information
Waraw, IN .– DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. announced continued expansion of its online education opportunities for the millions of Americans who seek information about joint replacement each year. Four extensive patient web sites – JointReplacement.com, MyShoulderReplacement.com, MyAnkleReplacement.com, and FingerReplacement.com – provide joint replacement patients with a broad range of resources from mobility assessment tools to surgical options and recovery information, as well as linking to an online discussion group for peer-to-peer support.
“Quality information is essential to making good decisions about your health,” says Lisa Mahan, Associate eMarketing Manager at DePuy. “DePuy’s goal is to educate, empower, and encourage patients to seek treatment by informing them about orthopaedic solutions and bringing them together with surgeons.”
The sites feature extensive information about joint pain treatment options, including the latest advances in joint replacement surgery; education about what to expect before, during and after joint replacement surgery; testimonials from patients who have had joint replacement; and an orthopaedic surgeon locator.
The performance of joint replacements depends on age, weight, activity level, and other factors. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if hip replacement is right for a patient.
