Legacy Total Joint Center-Good Samaritan

Praise from our Patients
"There is nothing more that could have improved my stay at Legacy Good Samaritan. Everyone was so encouraging and positive about my progress, and so patient and cheerful in what they did."

Joint pain can affect all aspects of your life. We're here to help, with a coordinated approach to getting you back on track with treatment, education, family involvement and group interaction. In addition to our patient services, Legacy offers a number of free classes on orthopedic and sports medicine topics. Check out our current schedule.

Coordinated, comprehensive care

When you call our referral line, a registered nurse will gather information and then refer you to an orthopedic surgeon. Whether you need pain management, physical therapy or surgery, we're with you every step of the way from diagnosis to recovery.

Our facility was named a Blue Distinction Center by Blue Cross Blue Shield in recognition of our extensive experience, rigorous quality standards, and consistently positive results.
