Geisinger, Medacta to guarantee total joint replacement outcomes


Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger, Geisinger Health Plan and orthopedic devicemaker Medacta are collaborating to offer a two-year guarantee for total hip, knee and shoulder replacement surgeries.

The guarantee applies to patients who are members of a qualifying Geisinger Health Plan and remain in the care of a Geisinger provider.

Patients with comorbidities — a major factor in determining outcomes — also are included in the initiative.

"We understand that the decision to have surgery is not made lightly. This guarantee offers patients a sense of security while making that crucial decision," Michael Suk, MD, chair of the Geisinger Musculoskeletal Institute, said in an Aug. 23 news release. "We offer world-class joint replacement expertise to our patients and we're willing to stand behind our surgeries for a lifetime."

Medacta and Geisinger also offer a lifetime guarantee for total hip, knee and revision knee replacement surgeries for eligible patients.
