Resources: What You Need To Know Before Your Surgery

There are many steps you can take prior to surgery to make the process easier, more comfortable and more successful.

Our FREE, bi-monthly preoperative class is one important option to consider at least two to three weeks before your surgery.

Members of our Joint Solutions team will be there to answer your questions and give you an in-depth preview of what to expect in the hospital and during your recovery.

The topics covered include:

  • Preparing for your joint replacement surgery;
  • Preoperative exercises;
  • The role of your coach/caregiver;
  • Introduction to the Joint Solutions team;
  • Pain management;
  • The daily agenda for Joint Solutions patients; and 
  • Discharge planning.

If possible, please designate a family member or friend to attend our class with you and serve as your helper and “Coach” throughout your joint replacement process.

We will also give you a tour of the Joint Solutions inpatient unit, so that you can get a feel for where you will be recovering and meet some of our team members beforehand.
