    MyOrthoHealth: Better Patient Experience With No Cost

    MNPS preschool teacher Natasha Massey will tell you: Not all hip and knee surgery experiences are created equal. When it came time to have her second knee-replacement surgery, she signed up for the MyHealth Bundles program, and she said it made all the difference in her care. “When I had this surgery done on my other knee, I was in another facility for two days, but at Vanderbilt it was outpatient surgery,” she says. “I literally walked the same day.”

    And that was just the start of her exceptional journey to better health. Not only was she able to return home the same day as her procedure, but the MyOrthoHealth bundle provided her with personalized, coordinated orthopedic care for 90 days and supplied all the medical equipment and physical therapy she needed to fully recover. Natasha admits she “was a little nervous about being an outpatient, but my care navigator and all the people at Vanderbilt made sure I was taken care of, and everything went smoothly.”

    Vanderbilt’s MyOrthoHealth bundle provides concierge service with a dedicated patient navigator, the most convenient inpatient and outpatient surgical options for bundled knee replacements in Middle Tennessee and physical therapy with no out-of-pocket costs.
