Total Joint Replacement Class
At Garnet Health Medical Center, your safety and successful recovery are our top priorities. Our experience has shown that an informed patient has a better understanding of the pre-procedure process, is more at ease about surgery and is better prepared for recovery and rehabilitation. Understanding what to expect and how to care for yourself after total joint replacement surgery can help assist with achieving successful outcomes.
Join us for a free pre-operative patient education class, led by the dedicated team of nurses from our Bone and Joint Center and highly skilled therapists from Garnet Health Medical Center’s rehabilitation program.
