Total Joint Replacement

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 handbook in preadmission testing (PAT); this handbook contains information about the hospital, and your hip or knee replacement surgery.

                A Total Knee Replacement Surgery Handbook (pdf)
                A Total Hip Replacement Surgery Handbook (pdf)

  • We offer a class to prepare you and your family for your surgery taught by our team that will be involved in your care.  You may find it helpful to be in a class with other people having joint surgery. 
  • Please click here for a full list of classes and times.  Please stop at the information desk when you  arrive in the lobby and ask for directions.

For questions about the class, contact Cathy Hayden at 315-423-4941 or email Ortho-education@sjhsyr.org
