Don't delay your care

We don’t want anything to stop you from living your best life and painful joints can keep you from that. While no one wants to have surgery, we hope you listen to your body telling you when it’s time to talk to your doctor about joint replacement surgery. While Daniel wasn’t necessarily experiencing too much pain, he knew something wasn’t right with this shoulder and is glad he decided to get it checked out.

Orthopedic expertise and experience

Director of Surgery Megan Espenschied is proud of the high quality and compassionate care that anyone who comes to HSHS St. Joseph’s can expect from the minute they walk through the doors of the hospital.
