Total Joint Replacement Class

This class in the Orthopedic Academy prepares patients scheduled for hip or knee replacement. Prior to surgery, you will come to UnityPoint Health - Methodist North for outpatient tests, such as labs and x-rays. We provide the total joint replacement class the same day you have your pre-surgical tests.

Registered nurses with special training in orthopedic care teach the class. Subjects include:

  • What to expect the day of surgery
  • Your plan of care each day after surgery
  • Pain management
  • Infection prevention
  • Blood clot prevention
  • Home exercise program (after surgery)
  • Ongoing recovery, including physical and occupational therapy (while you are still at Methodist and as an outpatient as needed).
