Total Joint Replacement Class
Wondering if total joint replacement is right for you? At the Center for Orthopaedic Innovation, staff and surgeons are dedicated to helping each and every patient find the best treatment option for their needs. While advances in total joint replacement surgeryhave made these procedures easier and more commonly prescribed, they still aren’t right for everyone.
If your orthopaedic surgeon does advise total joint replacement surgery, then you’ll be referred to a Motion Academy class at St. Luke’s Medical Center. At the class, you’ll receive practical knowledge that will better prepare you for orthopaedic surgery, hospitalization, recovery, and a better quality of life. Led by a panel of health care and medical experts from the Center of Orthopaedic Innovation, the Motion Academy provides patients, health care providers, and the community with information about musculoskeletal health and rehabilitation.
If you or a loved one are having – or are considering – surgery as a means to relieve joint pain, you should attend the Motion Academy’s Total Joint Replacement Class. This class will help you determine if total joint replacement is an option. In addition, you’ll be equipped with key information needed to facilitate pre-operative preparations, hospitalization, discharge, recovery and home care.
The Motion Academy Total Joint Replacement class is held every Friday afternoon (excluding holidays) from 2 – 3:30 p.m. at St. Luke’s Medical Center. Please call 1-877-351-WELL (9355) to register for dates and room location.
