Joint Replacement Classes

Do you have questions or concerns about your upcoming joint replacement surgery? Let the UOC team help you prepare for your surgery by taking our preoperative joint replacement education class available at our UOC Altoona office. Our educational seminars are free of charge to our joint replacement patients and their caregiver or family member.

The classes will:

  • Teach you what to expect before, during, and after surgery

  • Ease your worries and anxiety

  • Review how to manage your pain

  • Teach you how to prevent problems after surgery

  • Review the role of therapy as you heal

  • Layout a plan for going home and talk about equipment and home safety needs

  • Allow you to ask questions

Seminar dates and times are to be announced.
