Appalachian Regional Healthcare System Joint Replacement Guide

The Joint Replacement Program educates patients on what to expect before, during and after a joint replacement surgery at Watauga Medical Center. Patients meet with their recovery period primary caregiver for approximately one hour. Classes focus on those patients who are having hip and knee replacement surgery and provide an opportunity for patients and their coaches to ask questions.

It is important that the coach, as well as the patient, know what to expect before, during and after surgery. Knowing what the patient will be experiencing after surgery and during physical and occupational therapy will allow the coach to provide support and encouragement to the patient.

Patients are scheduled for a class a few days (up to 10 days) prior to their scheduled surgery date. Staff representing nursing, anesthesia, physical and occupational therapy and discharge planning teach the class. Preparing for surgery is key to a smooth recovery process.
