Pre-Surgery Education Classes
Pre-surgery Education Class
Baptist Health Lexington offers a total joint pre-surgery class for patients preparing for hip and knee replacement to better prepare them for surgery and rehabilitation.
This free class is offered two times each week before the scheduled procedure:
Tuesday 1:15 pm
Thursday 1:15 pm
Patients should check-in at Pre-Admission Testing before class time. Patients are also encouraged to bring a spouse or friend who will be their coach and assist with caring for them after surgery.
In the class, patients learn what to expect before, during and after surgery; medications; how to get around and care for themselves; and preparations for returning home. They also receive written material to use as a reference.
For convenience, class attendees are scheduled to have their necessary pre-admission testing performed the same day, including lab work.
To learn more about the total joint class, contact your physician or Baptist Health Lexington Pre-Admission Testing at 859-260-6499.
