Total knee and hip replacement classes offered monthly
It is normal to have anxiety and plenty of questions when you are considering or preparing for any orthopedic procedure.
Our free Total Joint Replacement classes for knee and hip replacements are taught by our own experts who, along with your surgeon, can help to ease your worries, answer all of your questions and make sure you are prepared for your new joint so you can successfully and confidently navigate your path to a healthier, more vibrant life with less pain.
Classes are offered monthly and led by the same nurses and physical and occupational therapists who help patients like you every day get back to doing the things they love. The classes were created with input from a multi-disciplinary group of departments and leaders at Grtiman, including dietitians, registered nurses, orthopedic professionals, surgeons and case management representatives, to guide you to the best possible recovery. The classes explore pre- and post-surgery exercises, nutrition, home preparation, a daily breakdown of what to expect during your stay at Gritman, equipment you may need during your recovery, your recovery at home, mobility, outpatient therapy and more.
“When you come out of your surgery you are going to have a much stronger hip or knee and you will be able to return back to a more normal life, but it can be scary having a surgery, and the more information you have ahead of time and the more prepared you are, the better off you will be,” Director of Gritman’s Therapy Solutions Justin Minden said. “These classes offer a really unique chance to know what to expect before and after the surgery.”
