The goals of the pre-surgical class are to improve patient readiness for surgery, provide a realistic overview of the hospital experience and recovery, decrease the anxiety that comes with elective surgery, communicate that joint replacement has a predictable course of surgery, treatment and recovery, and prepare the patient and family for post-discharge care needs. You are encouraged to bring family, friend or support person to class. You only need to attend one class.
