You, and someone you designate as a coach, will be required to complete the joint replacement class prior to surgery to help you understand what to expect before and after surgery.
You and your coach may be scheduled to attend an in-classroom session or you may be directed to complete the online joint class.
Complete The Online Joint Class
Once you have completed this online class and quiz, click the "Complete Class" button. You may be contacted by the nurse navigator to discuss your upcoming surgery and recovery. The orthopedic nurse navigator will also answer any questions you may have.
At your appointment with your joint replacement surgeon, you will receive a guidebook that contains helpful information, including exercises and precautions that will help ensure a safe recovery. The video below will give you an idea of what you will learn at our joint replacement class.
Our team’s expectation is to give patients the best outcome possible. You are an integral part of the process!
