Patients will be scheduled for the class at least two week prior to surgery. The patient will only need to attend one class. If it’s not possible for you to attend or if the date is inconvenient, please inform the program secretary at (810) 606-5140. Members of the Joint Replacement team will be there to answer your questions. It is strongly suggested that you bring a family member or friend to act as your “coach.” The coach’s role will be explained in class.
You will learn about:
- Preparing for surgery, including exercise and modifying your home for recovery
- Your daily schedule during your hospital stay
- Recovering after your surgery, including weekly goals.
Classes meet in the hospital auditorium.
