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.
