Total Joint Class

About This Event

We strongly encourage all patients either considering or already scheduled for joint replacement therapy to take our complimentary Joint Program. Taught by our Orthopedic Program Coordinator, with the participation of a physical therapist and an occupational therapist, the class covers hip and knee joint replacements, step-by-step, with visual aids including digital presentations, anatomical models, and hip and knee implants. A physical therapist teaches exercises to assist recovery and an occupational therapist demonstrates the use of assistive devices to facilitate daily living during recovery.

Topics covered include:

  • Anatomy
  • Anesthesia and Pain Management
  • Discharge Information
  • How best to prepare your home and coaches (your friends, family members or neighbors) for success
  • Surgery
  • What to expect during your hospital stay

Attendees are given an informational booklet about our Joint Replacement Program that helps to guide you through the surgical recovery process, information holders and contact numbers to call if they need more information. We have found that patients who attend this class are less anxious about their procedure and recover at a faster pace.
