Knee, hip and shoulder surgery can be physically and psychologically stressful
for patients. Getting you ready for surgery begins with a free pre-operative
education class about the surgery and what to expect before, during and
after the procedure. The pre-operative education class will answer your
questions regarding your surgery, recovery and return to normal daily
activities. Presented by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, including
nursing and rehabilitation services, this class is specifically designed
for our orthopedic patients, family members and/or caregivers.
- Class Content Includes:
- How to prepare for your surgery
- Pre-operative patient instructions
- What to expect the day of your surgery
- Post-operative care
- Pain management
- Equipment and devices
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Discharge planning/resources available during and after hospitalization
The pre-operative education class will give you information on what to
expect during your hospital stay and how to prepare your home environment
for your discharge. We encourage you to bring along the person who will
assist you after your hospitalization.
**Note this class is for patients that are registered for a knee, hip or
shoulder surgery at Jupiter Medical Center only.
