Wednesday, August 22, 2018, 1:30pm to 3pm. Our joint replacement class takes you through everything you need to know about your surgery and recovery:
Preparing for surgery: Learn when to come to your Center for Orthopedic Medicine location, what to bring, how to prepare and what to expect when you arrive.
During Surgery: Review your joint replacement - how it works and what it will do for you.
After Surgery: Learn what to expect after surgery, including pain management, blood clot prevention, medical equipment and rehabilitation. Find out about your discharge options and community services you may need.
About your surgery location: Get to know the Center for Orthopedic Medicine location where you'll have your surgery - everything from our gift shops and cafeteria to the visiting hours for your friends and family.
Your Orthopedic Team: Find out who will care for you before, during and after surgery. Learn how our surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and case managers work together to provide you with the highest quality care.
We encourage you to bring your family, which will play an important role in helping you through your recovery. It's important for your loved ones to learn too.
