Orthopedics Pre-Op Class

All patients scheduled for hip or knee replacement are expected to attend our 2 hour pre-operative class. You should register for this class as soon as your surgery date is confirmed. Registration is important to ensure that space is available for your selected class date. Class may be cancelled for low enrollment.

The pre-operative class is an opportunity to discuss topics related to preparing for surgery, your hospital stay, discharge planning, and physical therapy progression. You will leave with your questions answered and less anxiety about the process.

If you have any questions about the pre-operative class or are considering hip or knee replacement, please contact our Total Joint RN Coordinator, Jennifer Miller at (239) 624-3998 or by email at Jennifer.Miller3@nchmd.org. She will be happy to speak with you!
