Every journey needs a guidebook. These essential tools provide detailed information about what to expect before, during and after your joint replacement procedure. You’ll find week-by-week countdowns to help you prepare for the operation, a description of your hospital stay, general physical therapy and exercise recommendations (your doctor will guide you through those personally) and even tips to prepare your home for your return.
