The DNV GL Healthcare Hip and Knee Replacement Certification, based on standards set forth by DNV GL - Healthcare and considering the guidelines of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, recognizes program excellence in patient care and outcomes.
DNV GL - Healthcare certification as a Hip & Knee Replacement Center validates the hospital’s excellence across the spectrum of hip and knee replacement care, from diagnosis to treatment, rehabilitation, education and outcomes.

At Perry, we are proud of our high-quality standard and want to ensure we are always working to improve and make it better for our patients and their family members.”
