The orthopedics programs at Mobile Infirmary and Thomas Hospital lead the way in joint replacement technology, and we help lead our patients into faster recovery and better outcomes.  

Prior to surgery, we offer total joint replacement classes that explain what to expect after discharge and provide resources to assist in your recovery. Click here to view a flyer for Mobile Infirmary's classes.

Following your procedure, physical therapy is offered in the privacy of specially designed patient rooms. Our nurses are specially trained in pain management techniques and work with our physical therapists to provide you with the best care. We also coordinate with your physical therapy after discharge to provide continuity of care.

We are recognized by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama as a Blue Center of Distinction for Knee and Hip Replacement. Blue Distinction Specialty Care is a national designation program recognizing healthcare facilities that demonstrate expertise in delivering quality specialty care – safely, effectively and cost efficiently. The goal of the program is to help consumers find both quality and value for their specialty care needs, while encouraging healthcare professionals to improve the overall quality and delivery of care nationwide and providing a credible foundation for local Blue Plans to design benefits tailored to meet employers’ own quality and cost objectives.
