Pre-Op Total Joint Replacement Education
This is education to prepare you and your support person for your upcoming total joint replacement and care at home after your transition from the hospital. Your surgeon strongly encourages you and your support person to watch the video below before the day of your surgery. Use the Total Joint Replacement Booklet to follow along as you watch the video. Methodist West will have the booklets available if you wish to have a hard copy.
Please write down questions you have and bring them with you to the hospital. The orthopaedic team will be happy to answer them during your stay.
If you have questions that can't wait until your hospital admission, please call (515) 343-1300.
