Hip & Knee Resource Centre
Your education regarding Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery can start before you meet with your surgeon. The Hip and Knee Resource Centre offers an education class, Considering Joint Replacement Surgery, which provides information on the non-surgical treatment options for arthritis as well as helps you prepare for your consult visit with the surgeon. Once you decide to proceed with surgery and have been placed on the waitlist, there are more classes available to ensure your specific education needs are met before surgery. These classes include: The Knee Replacement Class, The Hip Replacement Class, Nutrition and Exercise Classes, Pain Management Class, and Before Your Surgery Preparation Class. You should receive a pamphlet outlining these classes and available dates when you are provided with your assigned surgeon. All classes provided through the Hip and Knee Resource Centre are free of charge. We encourage you to bring a family member or friend with you.
