Before Surgery

Before Surgery

Before surgery, patients in the Joint and Spine Institute at St. Mary’s Medical Center receive a comprehensive orientation packet outlining how to prepare for surgery, what to expect on the day of surgery and during recovery. Additionally, patients meet with the program coordinator. This pre-admission visit provides ample time for participants to ask questions as well as discuss preparation for and recovery from total joint replacement.

For more information on the Joint and Spine Institute at St. Mary’s, call 816-655-5465.
