A comprehensive, coordinated approach
We know that patients who are well prepared for surgery have better outcomes after surgery, which is why our program begins with a thorough pre-operative information session that will take you step-by-step through the surgery and recovery process. You will be invited to register for this class as soon as your surgery is scheduled. See dates, times and locations.
Find out what you need to know to prepare for surgery. You can also read our Joint Replacement Handbook or watch our videos below:
After surgery we continue our focus on education and information with daily notes, tips and inspiration for your inpatient recovery that will be delivered to your room, along with a few treats and a gift from your surgeon.
The total joint replacement recovery program at Woodwinds is called Joint Camp. Joint Camp provides a positive, encouraging environment for healing and return to wellness. You’ll benefit from group therapy and the opportunity to involve a family member or friend as your coach. Learn more.
