The key to a successful surgery is preparation and follow-up care. Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – Iowa has a program for patients that are considering total joint replacement surgery.
Each month, Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare and Covenant Clinic Orthopedic Surgery host a Total Joint Replacement Camp at 6:00 p.m. (starting April 2014) in the West Dining Room at Sartori Memorial Hospital in Cedar Falls. This program provides patient education about joint replacement surgery.
The program includes a brief presentation from joint replacement experts who work in areas including nursing, discharge planning and therapy. As patients become more informed, they can play an important role in advancing their own recovery and healing process.
The seminar is free and patients can call 319.272.7200 for more information.
