Orthopedic Services


The frustration of arthritis and joint pain can result in lack of mobility and a lower quality of life. Thankfully, Passavant has assembled the most highly skilled orthopedic providers and surgeons with advanced technologies and a highly-rated joint replacement program so patients don’t have to travel far to get moving again. From start to finish, the Orthopedic Care program at Passavant is all in one place.

Highly-Rated Joint Replacement Program
Comprised of the most skilled orthopedic surgeons from Springfield Clinic, and Orthopedic Center of Illinois, complete joint replacement outcomes rate very high in patient satisfaction.

JointWorks
We are proud to offer Memorial JointWorks at Passavant to help our joint replacement patients return to normal life and recover as quickly as possible. You’ll receive the same great care and state-of-the-art technology right here in Jacksonville.

JointWorks at Passavant has been designed to meet your needs for information and improved joint function. Our goals are to eliminate pain and discomfort in your unhealthy joint and increase your mobility, enabling you to return to the highest possible quality of life. With our innovative program, an experienced team of orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, therapists and social workers guides the patient from preoperative education through postoperative rehabilitation.

JointWorks at Passavant provides each patient with a case manager and a team of orthopedic specialists and nursing staff who specialize in joint replacement surgery and rehabilitation to work with you each step of the way. We also help your coach, a spouse or loved one, learn the best ways to help you through the process so you have the support and encouragement you need.

Acute Pain Management
Our use of nerve blocks rather than full anesthesia provides for better pain control and speeds post-op recovery.

Advanced Scope Procedures
Less invasive than prior surgical techniques, a joint scope can correct damage in the knee, shoulder, back, and hip.

Transitional Care Unit & Rehab
Most post-op patients require a level of continuing care, especially after joint replacement. All rehab and therapy is completed at the hospital without causing patients to travel to other facilities. Our Transition Care Unit offers round the clock special care in a residential setting. Passavant’s rehab department, staffed by highly trained professionals, assist with overcoming pain, mobility therapy, occupational therapy and much more.

Colorectal Cancer Screening Kit Pick Up

Posted on: March 13, 2017

Passavant Area Hospital and the Mia Ware Foundation are again partnering to bring prevention and awareness for colorectal cancer with a screening kit pick up and Community Health Talk later this month. The free kits will be available Thursday, March 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. and Friday, March 31, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the circle drive at the main entrance to Passavant, 1600 W. Walnut. Individuals should simply drive up, fill out a short questionnaire, talk to a nurse, and then complete the kit at home. The kit is then mailed to Passavant, with test results returned by mail in three to four weeks. The screening kits are new this year and are more convenient with only one stool sample required. They use the fecal immunochemical test screening method for hemoglobin in the stool. The test is considered the new standard for early detection of blood in the stool, one of the early warning signs of colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., but if detected early, 90 percent of those deaths are preventable. [caption id="attachment_14043" align="alignleft" width="150"] Jan Rakinic, MD[/caption] In addition to the free screening kits, Passavant is presenting a Community Health Talk on Friday, March 31, with Jan Rakinic, MD, Professor of Surgery, SIU School of Medicine; Chief, Section of Colorectal Surgery. Dr. Rakinic topic is “Screening for Colorectal Cancer: Is it Worth the Bother?” The program begins at 12 noon in Meeting Rooms 2 and 3 at Passavant. A complimentary lunch is included. Call 479-5800 to register.
