Joint Replacement and Orthopedic Therapy Program

Patients can pre-book their care with VNA South Central prior to a scheduled surgery. Your surgeon simply has to send us a referral with the plans for surgery and we can schedule post-op care in advance so your mind is at ease. Call us for more information, 203-777-5521.
