Preparing our patients for success

Our free total knee and hip replacement classes help educate patients (or those who may be considering a joint replacement) about what to expect in preparation for joint replacement surgery. During the class, we will review each step of the joint replacement process. We also encourage a family member or caregiver to attend with you, helping them know what to expect.
