UofL Health – Jewish Hospital has a comprehensive program for patients who are scheduled to have a total joint replacement. Once a patient is scheduled for a total joint replacement, an appointment will be scheduled for pre-admission testing one to two weeks prior to surgery. At this appointment, you will receive education on your total joint replacement.
The Bone and Joint Center at UofL Health – Mary & Elizabeth Hospital is a dedicated orthopedic unit with private rooms and a rehab clinic. We encourage patients to complete a pre-joint class taught by orthopedic nurses to help patients prepare for every stage of the joint replacement process. After the procedure, patients are usually ready for discharge home within a couple of days after their surgery.
