We are honored that you have chosen to have your orthopedic care at South County Health. Before your upcoming knee or hip procedure, you need to complete the Joint Replacement Class, either in-person or online. This class will provide you with helpful information in the days before, during, and after your surgery. We want you to be an informed participant in your healthcare and we encourage you and your family to ask questions.
As an alternative to the videos, we offer in-person classes for hip and knee replacement patients. These classes are held in the Pre-Admission Testing Department upon request.
If you would like to attend an in-person class, please call 401-788-1735. Leave your name and number on the message line. A member of the Pre-Admission Testing staff will contact you to schedule your in-person Hip or Knee Replacement Education class.
