Joint Academy/Orthopedics

Joint Academy is our rapid recovery orthopedic unit designed to provide treatment beyond your expectations. You'll find education and support for both patient and family prior to surgery and throughout the healing process. Fully equipped and professionally staffed, Allegan General Hospital's Joint Academy is the latest change designed to serve you better.

Allegan General Hospital offers the direct anterior approach for hip replacement surgeries. This approach is a minimally invasive technique that requires only a small incision, reduces tissue damage and results in a faster recovery for patients.
