Welcome to our Total Joint Replacement Program. We would like to make your experience as informative as possible. Our Joint Camp Program is every 3rd Wednesday of the month in the Education Building Classroom and offers a truly comprehensive approach to patient care, from diagnosis to rehabilitation. We have an interdisciplinary team of experienced healthcare professionals -- orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, specially-trained nurses, physical and occupational therapists, educators and case managers -- dedicated to delivering high quality patient care and working together to implement treatment plans tailored for each patient's individualized needs.
At our Joint Camp Program, we provide you with the necessary information about your preoperative and post-operative processes. Members of the multi-disciplinary team are present during education classes to provide information and answer your questions regarding your surgery. You will be contacted by a team member to schedule your class prior to surgery.
