There is a growing body of literature that indicates patients recover faster and are more satisfied with their joint replacement if they attended a pre-operative class on joint replacement. Cottage's pre-operative Joint Replacement seminar is offered free of charge to all who are interested.

 

The seminar is taught by licensed physical therapists and registered nurses who use a variety of teaching aids such as video presentations, discussion, and demonstration.  There will be ample time for questions and answers, both during and after the program.

 

Participants will be given a Joint Replacement Guide, which contains essential information for those considering joint replacement at a Cottage Health System hospital.

 

A healthy snack is also offered during the 1.5 hour program.  You will also have the opportunity to meet other people considering joint replacement.

 

Participants should expect to learn:

•    The steps involved in preparing for a successful joint replacement.

•    The anatomy of the major joints in the body.

•    What to expect while in the hospital.

•    What to expect during the recovery period after hospitalization.

•    How to safely prepare the home for the recovery period.

•    Answers to common questions about how to live successfully with your new joint.

•    And more . . .

 

Please also consider our Healthy Joint Living seminar as well as our Joint Pain seminar conducted by physical and occupational therapists on staff at the Cottage Center for Orthopedics.
