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.

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.
