Joint Replacement Class & Pre-Admission Testing

In advance of your surgery, we offer a unique, comprehensive joint replacement class. Taught by an orthopedic nurse navigator, it's during this time that you will:

  1. Learn what will happen during your hospital stay — before, during and after surgery
  2. Receive medication instructions for the day of surgery
  3. Find out how to prepare for your discharge and return home
  4. Discuss laboratory work, including a test for Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA)
