Preparing for joint replacement surgery

Knowing what to expect before surgery can reduce stress and prepare you for recovery. In addition to community outreach seminars, we provide:

  • A patient guidebook
  • Daily newsletters while you are in the hospital
  • Educational displays answering common questions

Free preoperative classes are available for total hip replacement and knee replacement patients. You will learn about your surgery and hospital stay, and you'll tour the unit for your care. You will also complete all preoperative requirements when you attend the class.

Classes are held on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays in the joint restoration unit on the sixth floor of E tower at 11 a.m.
