Preparing For Surgery: Pre-surgical Joint Replacement Visits
If you are planning to undergo hip or knee replacement surgery, you can reduce your fears and anxiety by receiving one-on-one education in your home from a physical therapist who will help you prepare for surgery and make plans for post-operative care. Beyond ensuring home safety, the pre-surgical joint replacement visit identifies many other issues, including medical equipment needs and post-operative exercises to speed recovery.
A physician's order or referral is required to purchase this assessment because it includes a patient assessment in addition to an assessment of the home environment before surgery.
Assessments can be purchased for a small fee by calling (630) 530-1201.
