Joint Replacement Center
At ECHN we believe successful hip or knee replacement surgery is a Joint Effort. Joint Effort is a free, preoperative education program offered monthly at Manchester Memorial Hospital. This free two-hour workshop features orthopedic nurses, care managers and physical therapists who thoughtfully review the surgical and recovery experience, pain management and the rehabilitation process. Patients who attend Joint Effort share that they feel more informed, less anxious and are able to be more proactive in their own recovery.
Joint Effort is open to patients with a surgical date for joint replacement or other orthopedic surgery, or those currently exploring options. Caregivers, family members and patients of other regional facilities are also welcomed and encouraged to attend.
This program is made possible through the generous support of the Manchester Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. For more information or to register, please call 888.299.3676.
