Preparing for Orthopedic Surgery

Join us to learn how to prepare for joint replacement surgery, what to expect while in the hospital and what you can do to make your transition back home a smooth one.


At Dignity Health, we are committed to ensuring patients and their caregivers are prepared for joint replacement surgery—before, while in the hospital, and once discharged home. Join us to learn how to prepare, what to expect, and have your questions answered. This class is a pre-surgery requirement for patients scheduled for surgery, but anyone considering joint replacement surgery is encouraged to attend this valuable information session. 

Please Note: Our in-person classes have been cancelled until further notice. However, two of our hospitals are currently offering the class virtually, and patients can review materials remotely for all hospitals. Find your hospital below for easy-to-follow class presentations and patient handbooks.
