This Joint Replacement Class is designed for anyone having joint replacement surgery at any of the Cone Health Hospitals. The same information is taught at each location, so you may attend class at either Cone Health Northwood or Annie Penn Hospital’s Shorty Stay Waiting Room. Each class lasts approximately 60 minutes.
We strongly encourage you attend a class before you have surgery and bring a guest or caregiver with you.
The goals of this class are to:
- Increase awareness of what to expect during your hospital stay.
- Describe how the patient and caregiver can be involved in your care.
- Explain how to best meet your discharge needs.
- Prepare for the best and safest recovery from your surgery.
