St. Mary’s Regional Joint Replacement Center offers a unique care experience for total hip and knee replacement patients. Care focuses on education prior to surgery followed by a group recovery program that’s proven to get patients back to their normal routine faster.
The program emphasizes wellness and a healing environment while keeping a patient’s family members involved throughout the treatment process. A multidisciplinary team of experts, including physicians, nurses, occupational and physical therapists, provides care and education.
St. Mary’s Regional Joint Replacement Center is recognized nationally for healthcare quality by the Joint Commission. St. Mary’s has been awarded the Gold Seal of Approval™ with disease-specific care certification for hip and knee joint replacement.
Studies have shown that joint replacement patients who recover as a team reach their goals faster and with fewer complications. For this reason, St. Mary’s program features a group recovery process with emphasis on a family environment.

Traditional total knee replacement (TKR) is still the gold standard solution and has been for many decades, but new techniques, materials and designs have given patients more options.
ConforMIS implants fit precisely by using CT scan data and 3-D printing technology to design an implant made specifically for each patient’s knee. They match the shape and curvature of a patient’s own knee to provide each patient with the potential for a more natural feeling knee.
Most traditional total knee implants require removal of the ACL, a ligament that helps provide the knee joint with natural stability and control. The XP Preserving Knee works with your natural anatomy to let you keep your healthy ligaments, including your ACL.
St. Mary’s Regional Joint Replacement Center is the only facility in West Virginia performing the XP Preserving Knee procedure.
Knee osteoarthritis sometimes only occurs on the medial side of the joint (the side closest to your other knee). In knees that are otherwise healthy, partial knee replacement can preserve the healthy bone, cartilage and ligaments.

The Navio® Surgical System for Partial Knee Replacement Surgery is a robotics-assisted partial knee replacement system that delivers accurate and precise results tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy, without the need for a CT scan. Instead, the surgeon is able to create a 3-D map of the patient’s knee during surgery. Because Navio is CT-free, patients can receive the benefits of robotic guidance without the hassle, cost and radiation exposure of CT scans.
When compared with the total knee replacement alternative, Navio offers patients:
