These classes are intended for patients who are scheduled to have a joint replacement at one of our hospitals.
We strongly suggest you attend a pre-op class, as we have found that they are helpful in preparation for this elective procedure. We will discuss joint replacement basics as well as what you need to do before surgery, expectations for the day of surgery and after surgery, and discharge planning information. Questions are taken throughout the class.
Registration is required as classes fill quickly and class times and dates are subject to change. You need only attend one class; duration of the class is one to one and a half hours.
If your schedule does not permit you to attend a pre-op class in person, you may view our free pre-op patient education video online.
