Why the class is important
The total joint class provides patients with coordinated care, convenient appointments, a multi-disciplinary care team, patient educational binder, and a small group education class. The free, small group educational class helps patients prepare for surgery and provides information about the hospital stay, pain management, mobility and anesthesia options, planning for discharge and post-operation therapy needs, and home preparation.
