Attend a Presurgery Education Class
If you are having hip or knee replacement surgery at Henderson Hospital, we want to be with you every step of the way. The orthopedic nurse specialists are experts in the field and will provide education about the specific procedures, help you understand common terminology and answer any questions you may have. You’ll go through experiences with other patients who are preparing for the same type of surgery. You will also have the opportunity to work with the equipment that the nurses and therapists will use after surgery and discuss any special modifications that may be needed in your home environment upon your discharge from the hospital.
It is encouraged that a family member or friend accompany you to the class as this individual will function as your “coach” during your hospitalization and will be an integral part of the recovery process.
These sessions will feature dedicated physician-specific education, discussions of patient expectations before and after surgery, and focus on building the foundation for a safe discharge home.
Joint Camp Classes are held the first and third Thursday of each month from 2 - 3 p.m.
