Preoperative Class for Total Joint Replacement Patients


If you are scheduled for total hip or total knee replacement surgery, you and a family member or other caregiver are invited to attend one of our preoperative classes. This class is designed to help you prepare for surgery, tell you what to expect during your hospital stay, and what to expect after you leave the hospial. We recommend that you attend the class 2 to 4 weeks before your surgery. There is no charge for the class. Class may be scheduled on the same day as your Pre-Admission testing at HackensackUMC.
