Preparing for Joint Replacement Surgery

Tuesdays, 10 – 11 am

IRMC Cafeteria/Private Dining Room

Who should take part?

Anyone who is scheduled to have joint replacement surgery at Indian River Medical Center. Joint Camp attendees typically have faster recovery times and a better understanding of what they can expect before, during and after surgery. We strongly encourage you to attend IRMC Joint Camp!

How will Joint Camp help me?

By participating in our free Joint Camp, you are able to meet members of your joint replacement team and learn about:

  • Home preparation and equipment you may need

  • What to expect the day of surgery

  • Exercises to do now for a quicker recovery

  • Physical and occupational therapy

  • Pain management

  • A plan for recovery and going home

  • Discharge planning/resources available during and after hospitalization

You are encouraged to bring along the person who will assist you after your hospitalization.

We look forward to seeing you both at IRMC Joint Camp!
