Total Joint Centers-Salmon Creek
We offer a new and award-winning approach for patients undergoing knee, hip or shoulder surgery. In addition to our patient services, Legacy offers a number of free classes on orthopedic and sports medicine topics. Check out our current schedule.
A new kind of hospital experience
Our center is specially designed for joint replacement patients, and it feels different from a typical hospital unit. Not only are patients served by nurses and therapists with special training in joint replacement recovery, but the entire center is designed to aid in healing, with:
- State-of-the-art therapy gym
- Walking track
- Patient education conference room
- Private rooms
The latest in robotics
Legacy Meridian Park and Legacy Salmon Creek are the only hospitals in the region using the innovative robotic MAKOplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing. This technology gives our surgeons advanced precision to replace only the damaged aspects of the knee. Advanced precision means a more minimal surgery, reduced pain and rapid recovery –– sometimes ideal for the younger patient who wants to remain active.
Earning a mark of distinction
Legacy Total Joint Center-Salmon Creek has earned the prestigious Gold Seal of Approval for knees, shoulders and hip replacement from The Joint Commission — one of only 120 programs in the nation, and only the third program in the nation to earn certification for all three procedures.
The Joint Commission is an independent, nonprofit organization that accredits and certifies more than 17,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States. This accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting high performance standards.
Additionally, Legacy Total Joint Center-Salmon Creek is designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Orthopedic Care Facility for total joint replacement. This designation recognizes Legacy Salmon Creek for consistently delivering evidence-based, quality care for total joint replacements.
