Patient Education

The Joint Replacement Center takes great pride in the quality of our patient education. An informed patient prior to surgery helps improve outcomes and leads to greater patient satisfaction. We hope the content on our site provides you with helpful information about our programs, specific surgery information, and rehabilitation. We are also pleased to offer classes for patients and downloadable guides to help prepare you for surgery, as you'll see below.
