Attend a preparation class

We require all patients who are undergoing total joint surgery attend our preparation class. 

In the class you will: 

  • Learn how to prepare for surgery 
  • Learn about your recovery, pain management and how to prevent complications 
  • Meet with physical and occupational therapy, nursing and social services representatives 
  • Learn more about setting up for home recovery and the types of special equipment needed 
  • Receive a patient handbook to better prepare you for surgery 

Once scheduled for surgery, your surgeon’s office will give you information about signing up for a pre-surgery class.
