Steps Program

The Steps Program is a comprehensive, planned course of treatment designed especially for the joint replacement patient.

Our goal is to educate and involve the patient every step of the way, guiding them to a more successful surgical outcome and helping restore them to a higher quality of living.

Total joint replacement patients typically recover quickly. Most patients will be able to walk the first day after surgery and can return to driving in two to four weeks.


Steps Program Includes

  • Hospital Pre-Surgery Class (Also available in Spanish)
  • Steps Program Patient Guide Book (Also available in Spanish)
  • Home Safety Assessment Sheet
  • Patient Care Plan
  • Dri-fit t-shirt and shorts for physical therapy sessions
