All patients are recommended to attend a total joint education class before surgery. An overview of what to expect and orientation to the surgery will be provided.
Patients are interviewed by a nurse who will offer an individual assessment to help evaluate the home situation, including necessary medical equipment. A check list helps the staff evaluate a patient's medical history and current health status. Lab tests and any additional tests will be completed at that time. Home visits can occur before surgery as requested.
We want to make your orthopedic surgery a positive experience. Please contact Kadlec Clinic Northwest Orthopedic and Sports Medicine with any questions.
