The Lowest Infection Rates in PA For Joint Replacement Surgery | Edgewood Surgical Hospital

The Lowest Infection Rates in PA For Joint Replacement Surgery | Edgewood Surgical Hospital

With over 35 years of combined surgical experience between our surgeons — and 60 years between our three board-certified physician assistants — the Whole Health Joint Replacement Institute knows exactly what it takes to set our patients up for success. Whole Health JRI now practices at Edgewood Surgical Hospital, where they take infections seriously, and as a result, have one of the lowest infection rates in the state of Pennsylvania. We know that an infection can significantly impact a patient’s life both now and in the future; that’s why Edgewood takes numerous steps to prevent infections before, during, and after every single specialized orthopedic replacement surgery.

Benefits of Working with Whole Health, The Region’s Top Specialized Orthopedic Joint Replacement Center

Whole Health Joint Replacement Institute offers patients same-day hip and knee joint replacements, as well as more medically and orthopedically complex joint replacements. Our own Dr. Molli is also one of the four creators of the medial unicompartmental replacement known as the Moto Partial Knee System, which is the most versatile, comprehensive and customizable partial knee replacement system on the planet. Having completed over 1,200 total joint replacement surgeries each year — four times as many as any leading competitor — Whole Health knows what it takes to set our patients up for the best possible outcome. We work to offer patients at higher risk the chance to medically optimize themselves in order to undergo a joint replacement operation and reduce or even eliminate potential complications.

If you’re experiencing severe hip or back pain, a decrease in your range of motion, or stiffness that will not subside, you may be a candidate for hip replacement surgery. If you experience severe knee pain during activity and at rest, in addition to a decreased range of motion and stiffness that doesn’t go away after non-surgical treatment, you may be a candidate for knee replacement surgery. Whatever your pain may be, Whole Health Joint Replacement can help provide long-lasting relief, along with proper education to prevent any additional injuries.

Patient Education For Shorter Recovery Times

Whole Health believes in thoroughly educating our patients about our procedures, which in turn leads to more successful outcomes, shorter recovery times, and healthier long-term lifestyles. Dr. Molli and Dr. Frndak have always been extremely dedicated to education and have found that it makes a huge positive impact on their patients after surgery. This allows them to have a better understanding of realistic expectations after surgery, which inevitably yields happier and more satisfied patients. Dr. Molli has performed over 300 educational seminars for patients in the past 10 years, and in addition to one-on-one education, these group seminars have been mandatory for every patient of Whole Health prior to every procedure we perform.

My surgery went very well and from beginning to the end I was very comfortable with all the stuff I came in contact with.  I was truly impressed with the organization of the office and also Dr. Molli’s expertise and bedside manner – Great Experience!

If I would have known how much better I would have felt I would have done it much sooner!  Great Job Dr. Molli!

When you can have a partial knee replacement at 10:30am and be home making yourself an omelet by 5:00pm, you know your surgeon has done a good job!  This was the 2nd knee replacement Dr. Molli has done for me .  I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else.  We’re very fortunate that Dr. Molli returned to our area to provide world class care right here in Crawford County.

My hip replacement experience was very efficient and easy.  Needing a hip is much more painful than getting a hip.  Thank You!

Michael K.

I had both of my hips replaced last fall, the second one completed a year ago yesterday. We have since moved to Virginia, but I wanted to send a picture of me up on the ladder, painting the barn, so Dr. Molli could see how well I am doing! I’m so thankful for the great job that Dr. Molli did! If he doesn’t remember me, I am the farmer whose hips he had to chisel out since they hadn’t moved for years! Thank you again.

Erich B.

This medical procedure and related activity was, by far, the absolute best I have encountered!  I am without reservation, 100% satisfied with my surgical outcome and will return for my other knee.  Thank you to all staff involved.

Walter K.

Everyone was pleasant and professional.  They were concerned about pain level and were accommodating.  Pleased with the results of my new knees!

Jane Z.

Thank you to Dr. Molli and his staff for repairing my knees.  I finally feel a light at the end of the tunnel is in my near future.  The only mistake I made was not coming to Whole Health first.

Andrew S.

Dr. Molli and the entire staff were exceptional.  Recovery is going great because of the education provided prior to surgery.  I am the third member of my family to have either a hip or knee replacement and we are all believers in the methods used at Whole Health.

David C.

Wonderful experience!  I have told many people how amazing the people are at Whole Health.  Very happy with my partial knee replacement!
