Starting with our Total Care joint replacement education program, patients can learn about their surgery, what to expect, how to prepare and rehabilitation options.

When it is time for surgery, it is performed by specially trained physicians in surgical suites with the latest technology, including Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery, a less invasive and more precise robotic technology for hip and knee procedures.

When surgery is complete, Backus has an expertly trained, compassionate staff to help patients get back on their feet again. Once out of the hospital, Backus and Windham hospitals offer a wide range of physical therapy and rehabilitation options in Norwich, Waterford, Colchester and Storrs. For more information, call 860.823.6317.

Backus is the only trauma center in all of Eastern Connecticut, with specially designed trauma rooms, highly trained staff and LIFESTAR helicopter stationed on the hospital grounds.
