Joint Camp will help you and your support person prepare for joint replacement surgery and recovery. You can expect to be provided with information on how to prepare your home for recovery and what to expect during your hospital stay. During Joint Camp we will start working with you on your discharge plan and explain what to expect during recovery.
Joint Camp is led by an Orthopedic Nurse Navigator and a member of the Physical Therapy Department. This class will provide you with answers to many of your questions and help decrease the anxiety you may feel about your upcoming surgery.
An Orthopedic Nurse Navigator can also arrange your Pre-Admission Testing before or after class. Joint Camp is located on the 4th floor of the Orthopedic Sports Center near the surgical waiting room.
Classes are offered Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. An afternoon class is offered at 1:00 p.m. each Thursday. To pre-register for Joint Camp contact an Orthopedic Nurse Navigator at 205-212-6032.
