Nurse Navigators

It’s very easy to feel overwhelmed when it’s time for orthopaedic surgery. That’s why our orthopaedic nurse navigators will help guide you and your family from pre-surgery to post-surgery care and through rehabilitation and recovery. Our navigators are here to serve as your personal guide throughout your care and even follow-up when you go home.

How we can help:

  • Home assessment for safety and mobility needs
  • Pre-operative education
  • Greet you upon your arrival the morning of your surgery, visits throughout your stay and follow-up phone calls when you get home
  • Connect you with other hospital services as needed
Feel free to reach out to our nurse navigators at anytime if you have questions:

Rehabilitation and Therapy

Whether you have suffered an orthopaedic injury, undergone joint replacement surgery or are dealing with a chronic back condition, the rehabilitation and therapy staff at Boone Hospital Center provide both inpatient and outpatient care. The specialty-trained physical and occupational therapists are here to help you throughout your recovery by improving your strength and flexibility, increasing your endurance and improving your coordination.

Inpatient therapy can help orthopaedic patients:

  • be mobile again
  • improve their balance
  • reach required recovery goals for discharge
Outpatient therapy can help orthopaedic patients:
  • develop and follow a recovery plan after discharge
  • continue their progress through one-on-one treatment with a licensed therapist
  • find additional resources within Boone Health when needed.
