The Orthopaedic and Spine Institute is committed to providing an exceptional experience for your total joint replacement. As a requirement for your surgery, we ask that you attend a pre-operative appointment at least 2 weeks before the date of your surgery. This appointment will include all of the necessary pre-operative testing (ie: lab work, chest x-ray, urinalysis, etc…). Compile and bring with you a list of all medications you are currently taking, including vitamins and over the counter medications.
Total Joint Replacement Class
In addition to the pre-operative appointment, you will also be scheduled to attend a 120-minute Total Joint Replacement Class.
This interactive, one time session is packed with information that will help ease any anxiety you may have, as well as offer education about how to best prepare for surgery and how to help expedite your recovery. Your surgeon will provide information on scheduling both your pre-operative appointment and the Total Joint Replacement Class.
