Morristown Medical Center provides our patients and referring physicians with the information they need before, during and after treatment.
Total Joint Education Classes are offered to all patients scheduled for a total hip replacement or a total knee replacement surgery. Classes cover both preoperative preparation and immediate postoperative care in the hospital. Additionally, post discharge care and instructions, including physical therapy and occupational therapy are addressed. Patients who have taken the classes report that they are less anxious after the class and have a more positive attitude about the entire surgical process.
Classes are held at the North Jersey Regional Arthritis Center at 95 Madison Avenue, Suite 306, Morristown, New Jersey. Classes are offered once a week for hip replacement and twice a week for knee replacement:
Total Knee Replacement - Tuesday 10:00am
Total Hip Replacement - Wednesday 10:00am
