Description

Our total joint class supports you on your path to living with a new hip, knee, or shoulder. We can help reduce your anxiety, control your pain, and help you learn what to expect during your recovery.

You will:

  • Gain knowledge and tools to ensure your surgery and recovery are smooth
  • Interact with a variety of health care professionals
  • Prepare your body and home for surgery and recovery
  • Learn how to manage post-surgery pain
  • Learn what to expect at the hospital
  • Learn what physical and occupational therapy options are available

This class is for patients, coaches, and caregivers. We strongly recommend you bring a "coach," a friend or family member who will support you through your joint replacement surgery and recovery.

We meet Mondays and Thursdays from 1-3 p.m.
