Sentara OrthoJoint Center® Patient and Family Education
Thank you for choosing Sentara for your joint replacement surgery. At Sentara, we strive to keep you informed and provide you with comprehensive care. Use the links below to access preoperative (pre-op) education, including a video that will prepare you for your upcoming joint replacement surgery, our Patient and Family Guidebook and more information about the location where you are having surgery.
Knowing what to expect before and after surgery can help prepare you for an excellent outcome. We have created preoperative education specifically with that goal in mind. We suggest you and your Coach participate in pre-op education. Below, you will find a link to our pre-op joint replacement video to provide you with the information you need to prepare for your surgery and recovery. This 27-minute video includes pre-op details, medication guidance, medical clearance instructions, what to expect on the day of surgery and recovery, and postoperative (post-op) care.
To best prepare yourself for your upcoming surgery, we encourage you to participate in preoperative education at the hospital where you will be having surgery. To find a class, please visit Sentara.com/Events.
