Total Joint Replacement

You may require a total joint replacement procedure as a natural result of bone and cartilage wear and tear during your lifetime. Any number of factors might impact the wearing away of the surfaces of the hip causing pain and discomfort when you perform even the simplest of tasks.

If your condition requires surgery, there is no place better prepared to serve all of your total joint replacement needs than the Longfellow Center for Joint Replacement. Here, you’ll find a highly coordinated Care Team centered approach that prepares you well before your actual surgery and provides you with comprehensive clinical care during your recovery and beyond.

The dedicated professionals who make up your Care Team believe the key to better outcomes is a commitment to providing you with a thorough understanding of what to expect during your surgical experience. Knowing what to expect every step of the way helps to reduce stress and anxiety preparing you for as smooth a recovery as possible. We work to not only educate you on what to expect before your surgery, but help maintain the highest quality standards during your procedure and to make sure that your post discharge regime is well-planned, implemented, and managed.

Depending on which type of surgery you need - be it hip replacement or knee replacement - you can be sure that your highly dedicated care team will make your stay at the Center as comfortable and pleasant as possible.


Our comprehensive treatment program encourages a speedy, yet safe discharge in as little as one to three days after your procedure through a team-based, coordinated program, built around individual and group activities, including:

  • Comprehensive Preoperative Education Classes
  • Total Joint Replacement Guidebooks
  • Private rooms
  • Group activities
  • Family/friends in the role of “Coach” 
  • Quarterly luncheons with former patients

Once you review the information related to your particular condition, please call us to schedule an appointment with one of our surgeons at 617-491-6766.

We look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have.
