Pre-operative Education

Patients having a hip or knee replacement can join a virtual education session led by a physiotherapist and a nurse. They will discuss important information to help patients understand what to expect, how to get ready for the procedure, and what things can be done to help improve outcomes and recovery. Live, virtual classes are offered online. Please click on this link for the schedule of virtual classes.
