Three to four weeks before your joint replacement surgery, you should take CoxHealth’s Joint Adventure patient education class.
You’ll learn what to expect before, during and after your surgery, and how you play an incredibly important role in your own recovery. Your coach – a family member or friend of your choosing –should attend class with you. Our case managers, nurses and therapists will be available to answer all your questions.
Class also includes virtual tours of the operating room, a patient room and our therapy gym. You attend class with other patients who are preparing for the same surgery, so learning occurs in an open, friendly environment. Our goal is simple: to help you get back to normal as quickly and as safely as possible.
Patients say the class helps them feel prepared and at ease. In fact, 99 percent of patients rate the class positively. Some sample comments: "The class gives both coach and patient a sense of assurance about the upcoming event. Not so 'scary' after sitting through class." "I learned so much I didn't know about my surgery and how to help myself after." "The Instructor was very clear and informative. Excellent job." "I can finally sleep tonight. My answers have put me to rest."
