Joint Replacement Classes

Published On 05/18/2012

Informed patients typically recover more quickly and have a better overall experience, so we offer free hip and knee replacement classes for anyone considering joint replacement surgery. 

These classes will tell you:

  • What to expect during and after a total joint replacement operation
  • How to prepare yourself to ease recovery
  • Rehabilitation options after your surgery
  • About the care team who will work with you each day

If you live out of town and can't attend, please call and we'll mail you information.
