We Understand Joint Replacement Is a Big Decision

That’s why Samaritan’s Total Joint Replacement Program is based on advanced preparation, education and individualized post-surgical therapy.

Better yet, our program is based at Samaritan Albany General Hospital, which has been given a 5-Star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. This rating validates the hospital’s excellence across the full spectrum of care - from diagnosis to treatment, rehabilitation and outcomes.

You don’t have to travel far to know you’re getting the best possible care, right here at home.

Regain the Freedom to Enjoy Doing the Things You Love 

Our joint replacement team helped Jon McKibben of Jefferson get back to hunting, fishing and hiking in the great outdoors. We can help you, too.

Put a Great Team to Work for You

“The cooperation between my doctor, the hospital and the physical therapy team just clicked. I’ve got my life back.”
