St. Vincent’s Total Joint Replacement Preoperative Education Program is designed to bring together patients and practitioners from all stages of care. The program includes presentations from social workers, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and surgeons. By the end of the 90-minute class, patients scheduled for surgery in the days ahead have learned about their surgical procedure, pre-op exercise recommendations, post-op pain management, physical therapy, occupational therapy and hospital discharge.
