Patient Education

The program emphasizes patient education, including pre-operative educational classes for patients scheduled for joint replacement at L+M. Preoperative classes are designed to fully educate patients and families on what to expect pre operative, while in the hospital, and discharge planning. Being aware and educated has the ability to decrease anxiety and maximize your joint replacements results. Classes are run by Registered Nurse, Case Management and Physical Therapy. Bring a “coach” with, so that both of you can get the most out of the education and information provided.

Discussion includes:

  • How to prepare for surgery
  • Infection Prevention
  • What to expect in the hospital
  • Physical and Occupational Therapy
  • Discharge Planning
