Joint Effort: Education Support for Joint Replacement Patients

If you’re having hip, knee or shoulder replacement surgery with one of our orthopedic specialists, we encourage you to prepare for your surgery and return home through our “Joint Effort” information classes.

Classes are designed to help you feel more prepared and more confident about what to expect during your hospital stay and after you return home. Research shows that patients do better after surgery when they know what to expect. Information will include:

  • What to expect during your hospital stay
  • How to prepare your home for your return after surgery
  • How to manage your care at home
