Home    Orthopedics    Joint Replacement    Before and After Surgery    Joint Adventure Class
Joint Adventure Class

CoxHealth offers a joint replacement education class three to four weeks prior to your surgery.

The class will tell you what to expect before, during and after your surgical procedure and how you can be an integral part of your own recovery. Our specialized staff of case managers, nurses and therapists will answer every question for you and your coach (a family member or friend of your choosing).

During class, you will have a virtual tour of the operating room, a patient room and the therapy gym. There will be other individuals preparing for the same procedure, so you will learn about this experience in an open and friendly environment.

As of April 2014, the class had a 99 percent positive rating from patients. When asked what they liked best about the class, patients said:

"Instructions increased my confidence in the success of the operation."

"Having material presented by people experienced in this field was extremely valuable -- especially their personal insights on practical matters, goals and being in charge of my own recovery."

"I appreciated finding out the details of what happens each day."

"They hit on every topic I needed to know about and things I was going to ask about."

"I got the tools and information to help my dad with his recovery."

OUR GOAL IS SIMPLE: To return you to normal function as quickly and as safely as possible.
