Joint AdVentures

Joint Replacement Program

Ashman Pavilion, Ninth Floor

Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center's Joint AdVentures is a comprehensive joint replacement program designed to educate, prepare, and follow-up with patients receiving joint replacement surgery.

Joint replacement surgery is often recommended when all other treatment options, including but not limited to  rest, medication, exercise, and physical therapy, have been exhausted. Joint replacement surgery can have a tremendous impact on a patient's quality of life by improving independence and mobility, and reducing joint-related pain. 



Gender-Specific Replacements

Conemaugh physicians utilize gender-specific replacements that fulfill needs of men and women.
