Prior to Surgery

Prior to surgery you will attend a St. Vincent’s Health System Joint Camp, which will help prepare you for surgery.  Some of the information covered in Joint Camp will include making a “To Do List” prior to surgery, working with your orthopedic surgeon, preparing your home for discharge, what you may need during your hospital stay, how to prepare the night before surgery and your arrival at the hospital on the day of surgery. 

For more information about Joint Camp please contact a Joint Replacement Navigator at (205) 212-6032.
