Total Joint Education Class
One of the first steps to a new joint is to attend one of St. Anthony’s Joint Replacement Classes. This class gives you helpful information about preparing for your surgery, adapting your home for recovery, and knowing what to expect following surgery.
Patients are encouraged to make plans to attend a class a few weeks, or even a few months, before surgery, if possible. Evidence shows that those who have attended a joint class early, and prepared for surgery by doing the recommended exercises, have the best results. Even if your surgery is not yet scheduled, but you know joint replacement is in your future, plan to attend a class so that you can feel confident about your surgery.
To join a class, please call the Pre-Admission Office at (712) 794-5733 to RSVP your attendance.
Joint Classes are held in the St. Anthony Room, in the Education Center at St. Anthony. When you arrive for your class, plan to park in the covered parking and take the elevators in the Surgery Building to the Education Center, on 4th floor.
