The bone and joint class is part of our team commitment to communication. This informational forum provides patients and a guest with information about all stages of their treatment experience, from pre-surgery planning through discharge and home care.
The class offers you an overview of what to expect during your treatment, from surgery through recovery, and how to best prepare for surgery. This preparation is important for you, your family and loved ones so that they understand how to prepare themselves.
During the class you will have the opportunity to meet and talk to members of the bone and joint team. This is a great time to ask questions and gives you the opportunity to learn even more about your treatment.
In addition to meeting the team members, the class connects you with other people who, like you, have elected to have bone and joint surgery. Sharing information with our health care professionals and other patients allows you to become more informed, and will permit you to make smart decisions about your own care.
You will also meet your case manager at the class. Your case manager is your partner during your entire treatment path, from surgery all the way through recovery and your discharge home. The case manager makes sure that your path to the best health outcome possible is smooth, and that the transition from hospital to home is seamless.
To find out more about the specific meeting dates, times and location, please speak with your orthopedic surgeon.
