About GSH Joint Replacement Center
The Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH) Joint Replacement Center in Dayton has earned a national reputation for high-quality orthopedic care, particularly in the most complicated cases. We offer the most up-to-date and longer-lasting hip and knee replacement technologies. We also do hip arthroscopy and early intervention to prevent hip arthritis.
Joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which a worn or injured joint is replaced with a new artificial joint. The type of surgery and materials used will vary depending on the patient's medical situation, lifestyle, age, and other factors. The GSH Joint Replacement Center surgeons carefully assess the procedure and materials most appropriate to each patient's unique needs. Of patients who undergo joint-replacement surgery, 90 to 95 percent experience significantly reduced pain and increased mobility.
An independent monitoring organization, HealthGrades, has given Good Samaritan Orthopedics their highest ratings in several aspects of joint replacement since 2002. Year after year, Good Samaritan Hospital receive five stars, the highest rating possible, for overall orthopedic care and for our important specialties such as hip and knee replacement. In fact, we are the only facility in Dayton, Cincinnati, Middletown, or Springfield ranked in the top 10 percent in 2008. Other hospitals refer their most difficult cases to us because we have the experience and the expertise to handle these complex cases.
We Make Surgery Work for You

Before surgery, several GSH Joint Replacement Center staff members, including a dietician, will give you important instructions, and our orthopedic staff will even come to your home to help you prepare. After surgery, your family will welcome you in a private room, and some of the most advanced pain management available will help you start moving, start walking, and start healing as soon as possible after surgery.
