Community Memorial Joint Orientation

In accordance with state and local distancing guidelines, and out of an abundance of caution for our patients, physicians, and staff, our in-person classes and support groups have been suspended until further notice.

Before surgery, joint replacement patients attend a free, comprehensive pre-surgery orientation led by your Community Memorial health care team. The perspective and advice shared includes what to wear after surgery, how to prepare your home for the recovery process, sample exercises, how to care for your new joint and what equipment or supplies you might need. Patients who attend Joint Orientation prior to surgery typically have a better experience and recovery.

Free parking is available on the campus of Community Memorial.
