Geisinger’s Total Joint Class
If you’re considering joint replacement surgery at Geisinger Wyoming Valley or Geisinger Medical Center, we’re proud to offer you a unique class to help you with both preparation and recovery. Our Total Joint Class is one reason our patients are so successful after total joint replacement surgery, and it’s offered only at Geisinger.
We’ll invite you and a family member to the Total Joint Class, which is held about three weeks before surgery. The one-session class covers:
- What you can expect before, during and after surgery
- Important exercises to do before surgery, so you will be ready for rehabilitation afterward
- Instructions to help build your blood count before surgery
- Opportunities to ask questions about your care and learn from others who are sharing the same experiences.
