Joint Success 
 
 
Sierra Vista offers a pre-operative class to help educate patients and their families about hip and knee replacement surgery. 
 

Joint replacement surgery can relieve pain and enable individuals to live fuller, more active lives. But knowing what to expect before, during and after surgery isn't always clear.

Joint Success is a pre-operative education program at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center designed for patients who are thinking about or have decided to have joint replacement surgery. The two-hour class will prepare patients and their families on what to do before and after surgery.  The seminars are conducted by licensed physical therapists and registered nurses who will discuss:

  • Pre-Operative Testing
  • Physician Evaluation
  • Hospital Admission Process
  • Pre-Operative Exercises
  • Brief Description of Surgery
  • Pain Management
  • Bathing
  • Dietary Needs
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Equipment 
  • Home Care 

 

 

Registration is required. Please call 1-800-483-6387 or go to Find an Event to register. Friends and family members are welcome.
