Gold Seal of Approval™

Certified by The Joint Commission:   

  • Total Hip Replacement 
  • Total Knee Replacement 
  • Spine Surgery

I had my left hip replaced last year and was very impressed with the Total Joint Replacement Program at Atlantic Rehabilitation Institute. This year, I had my right hip replaced and the care was even better. I can’t say enough good things about the staff. The physicians and nurses are knowledgeable and supportive, and the support staff couldn’t be more caring.
