Education is a key feature of The Total Joint Center. Preventing injuries and teaching individuals undergoing total joint replacement surgery what to expect during and after hospitalization can have an important impact on recovery as well as requirements for future treatment. To educate patients and their families, the Orthopaedic Center offers weekly pre-operative education programs for hip and knee replacement.
Prior to your surgery, all pre-admission testing, including blood work, electrocardiograms and anesthesia assessment, will be done in a streamlined admission process. All Orthopaedic surgeries are performed in Operation Room suites dedicated to Orthopaedics. Bloodless surgery is an option for patients who desire surgery without blood transfusions.
