A special class is held every Monday morning for patients scheduled for joint surgery. Prior to attending this class, you must have been medically cleared by your primary physician if you have significant medical problems. You will be scheduled for this class 2 - 3 weeks prior to your surgery. This will allow you time to practice your exercises and make final preparations for surgery. You will only need to attend one class. Members of the “team” will be there to answer your questions. It is strongly suggested that you bring a family member or friend to act as your “coach”. The coach’s role will be explained in the class. You should leave this class with a better understanding of how your hospital stay will proceed.
