Joint Surgery Resources

There are FREE Education Seminars for patients scheduled to have joint replacement surgery.

FMC's orthopedic surgeons highly recommend this seminar to better prepare patients and their families for their upcoming surgery.

Patients are strongly encouraged to bring a friend or family member who will be their “coach” during the recovery process. Each participant reviews the Patient Education Guidebook they received from their surgeon. Beverages will be served and the seminar is free.
