Red knee

This class is offered throughout the week and is strongly encouraged for all patients undergoing total hip, total knee, or partial knee surgery to attend 2-4 weeks prior to surgery. At this in-person class, patients and one support person will meet with some of our joint care team to help prepare for the procedure and plan for a successful recovery.

During the class, we will discuss:

  • What is Joint Disease?
  • Ways your coach/caregiver can help
  • Meet some of your joint care team members
  • Healthy Eating
  • Review pre-operative and post-operative exercises
  • Learn about assistive devices and joint protection
  • Discharge planning/insurance/equipment
  • Complete pre-operative forms
