Thank you for choosing St. Joseph's Hospital for your surgery! We offer various options to help you prepare for your surgery:
- You will be given a binder in preadmission testing; this binder contains information about the hospital, the orthopedic unit, and your hip or knee replacement surgery.
- We offer a class to connect you to a nurse who will be taking care of you while you are in the hospital as well as others who may be having the same surgery as you.
Day classes are offered every Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Dr Graber’s office. His office is located on the 8th floor (Suite 809) of the Medical Office Building (MOC), or the new parking garage at St. Joseph’s Hospital. The address for the building is: 104 Union Ave, Syracuse, NY 13203.
