This Guide Book is intended to help you through your joint replacement surgery with a better understanding of what to expect before, during and after your surgery. We have divided the information into five (5) sections:
SECTION 1: PREOPERATIVE CHECKLIST SECTION 2: HOSPITAL STAY SECTION 3: POSTOPERATIVE CARE SECTION 4: EXERCISES SECTION 5: ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Please read all the information carefully before your surgery. It is also important that you start your exercises. Please call Kerry Volmer, RN, Joint Care Coordinator, at (620) 820 - 5465, or one of our physical therapist at (620) 820 - 5238, if you have any questions, concerns or need additional information.
Please bring the book with you when you come for surgery and feel free to make notes in this book. It is yours to keep!
