Surgery day

On the morning of surgery, your coach, family members and/or friends will be able to stay with you until you're ready to be transported to the surgery room.

At this time, they will be escorted to a family waiting area where they can stay while you are in surgery.

While in the operating room, you will be cared for by a team of physicians, nurses and skilled technicians.

Once the joint replacement surgery is complete, you will be taken to the recovery room where you'll be monitored by specially trained nurses and your anesthesiologist.

At this point, a member of the surgical team will call your coach, family member or friend, and they will be able to speak with your surgeon about your procedure.

Once you have recovered from your anesthesia, you will be transported to your room in the Joint Replacement Center of Excellence.

Your surgeon will order physical therapy and rehabilitation, which begins the day of surgery.

Most of our patients are ready to sit at the edge of the bed, stand and even take a few steps on the day of surgery.

Many of our patients are doing well enough to leave the day after surgery. However rest assured that we will not discharge you until you have safely reached all your goals.
