Before & After Your Stay

Preparing For Surgery

  • Education classes prior to surgery, preparing patients for their joint replacement and hospital stay
  • Review of helpful pre-surgical exercises
  • Convenient testing scheduled in conjunction with educational classes

Recovery

The recovery phase begins as soon as the patient is out of surgery.

Patients can expect:

  • To be up and walking the day of surgery
  • Exercising in a Group Class setting
  • To be climbing stairs, practicing a safe transfer in and out of a car and walking, walking, walking!
  • Anticipate a home discharge

Going Back Home

Most participants will be leaving the hospital to go home on post- operative day one or day two depending on their progress. By that time, patients and their families will be armed with enough information to continue the rehabilitation process at home. With the support of The Joint Institute, patients will be back to a better quality of life in no time. Our physicians and The Joint Institute staff are only a phone call away.
