Patient Education: Classes, Guides and Videos

Patient Education Classes

Our team offers preoperative education classes for patients considering surgery. The classes provide an overview of the experience – from preoperative planning to the patient’s return home. Patients and a family member or friend are strongly encouraged to attend. The classes provide more information and the opportunity to ask questions and talk to the instructors about concerns.

Patient Education Guides

We are proud of the orthopaedic care we provide and are pleased to offer these guides as a way for you and your family to fully understand what you can expect when you come to Newton-Wellesley Hospital for your knee/hip replacement procedure.
