Joint Adventure Patient Education Pre-Op Class
The Center for Joint Replacement at St. David's Georgetown Hospital presents a patient education class for those patients scheduled for surgery to have their knee or hip replaced. This class educates patients about the risk factors involved and how they are minimized through the collaboration of the healthcare professionals and the patient. During this class, a nurse and a Physical Therapist will review expectations of the surgery before and afterwards. One goal of this class is to help decrease any anxiety you or your loved one may have about your surgery.
