Teammates in Recovery

It takes a team to recover from a traumatic injury. A unified lineup of surgeons, healthcare professionals, family and friends to help navigate what is often a complex and challenging journey.

The road to recovery is tough. It demands a great deal of strength – and not just in the physical sense. Mental health and well-being also play a critical role, and finding emotional support is a key part of the process.

Teammates in Recovery is a campaign from DePuy Synthes, the Orthopaedics Company of Johnson & Johnson, that aims to create community and provide support for those who have experienced traumatic injury and the people who care for them.

We’re All in This Together

When the days are hard, and the gains are slow, it's important to remember: You are not alone. That's why Teammates in Recovery is here to remind you that other survivors are out there. Other people are on the comeback trail just like you.

You may have different experiences, but your stories carry the same grit and determination. The same resilience that can become fuel for the journey. Your stories can show others that we're all in this together. That we're all Teammates in Recovery.
