Pre-Operative Planning & Education

In addition to the education provided in your surgeon’s office, every patient in the Joint Institute attends an intensive pre-surgical education program to prepare you for surgery. In the classes, you will learn in detail the mechanics of the joints and how they relate to your procedure.

You will received a detailed patient guide book (available below) that will let you know what to do prior to surgery, what to expect during your stay in the hospital and how to care for yourself when you leave the hospital. The classes for you and your family member will take place approximately three weeks before surgery.
