If you are considering knee or hip replacement or if you are scheduled for the procedure, attend a free pre-operative class to meet your caregivers, see our facility and learn what to expect before, during and after surgery.
Come to hear about how to prepare for surgery, your hospital stay and hospital services, and planning for a safe and successful recovery.
Once you are scheduled for total joint replacement, we recommend attending the class about four weeks before your procedure. We understand the importance of family and friends as you recover from surgery and we fully support their involvement by encouraging you to designate a recovery "coach". This friend or family member will support you through this process. Please encourage him or her to attend the class with you.
Those considering joint replacement are welcome anytime. The class is held at Holy Cross Hospital's Professional and Community Education Center, 1500 Forest Glen Road Silver Spring, MD, 20910.
2013 Schedule: Mondays from 2 to 4 p.m.
