(Vocus) February 22, 2010 -- Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas has designated Houston Northwest Medical Center as a Blue Distinction Center for Knee and Hip Replacement. Blue Distinction Centers for Knee and Hip Replacement are part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association’s expansion of its Blue Distinction® designation.

“This recognition underscores Houston Northwest Medical Center’s ability to deliver better overall clinical outcomes for our patients,” says Alberto Cuellar, M.D., orthopedic surgeon on the medical staff at Houston Northwest Medical Center. “We understand the challenges patients face living with limited knee or hip function. That is why our multidisciplinary team works together to help restore patients’ mobility and improve their quality of life by providing the highest level of orthopedic care.”

Houston Northwest Medical Center offers minimally invasive hip and knee replacement surgery.

“Blue Distinction Centers show our commitment to working with doctors and hospitals in communities across the state to identify leading institutions that deliver better overall outcomes in patient care,” says Dr. Eduardo Sanchez, vice president and chief medical officer, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas. “With the number of patients undergoing surgeries and hospitalizations for spine, knee and hip conditions growing dramatically, it becomes increasingly important to help these patients and their physicians identify facilities that have experience in comprehensive care with the best outcomes in these areas, including post operative rehabilitation.”

The selection criteria used to evaluate facilities were developed with input from a panel of expert
