This class meets regularly on the first Wednesday of each month from 1:30-4:00pm.
Are you suffering from arthritis or joint pain? If chronic knee or hip pain has stopped you from doing the things you always loved to do, it may be time to consider a total knee or hip replacement procedure. If you are discussing joint replacement surgery with your physician or are scheduled for your procedure, we encourage you to attend this FREE class. You will learn all about the surgical procedure, what to expect during your hospital stay, and helpful tips and demonstrations that will assist you in your recovery.
Lead by our Joint Program Coordinator, this class gives you the opportunity to ask questions and talk to former patients about their joint replacement surgery and rehabilitation experience.
About The Joint Replacement Center
A stiff, painful knee or hip can make even walking difficult. You may be a candidate for joint replacement if your ability to walk or perform activities is severely limited due to arthritis. At the award-winning Joint Replacement Center at Shady Grove Medical Center, we can help get you moving again. Shady Grove Adventist Hospital offers the full spectrum of total hip and knee procedures, including minimally-invasive options.
Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons perform hundreds of total hip and knee replacements every year, using safe, reliable procedures. Shady Grove Medical Center is one of less than ten hospitals in Maryland to hold The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval for joint replacement of hips and knees. This certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of exceptional care.
