Total Knee & Hip Patient Education

Total Joint Replacement Education Program is now Virtual

Traditionally held in person at the hospital once a month, Thompson Health’s monthly Total Joint Replacement Group Education Program is now available online. The free program addresses questions about preparing for this elective surgery, covering topics such as getting your home ready, beginning an exercise program and more. Nancy Buerman, clinical coordinator of physical therapy at Thompson Health, facilitates this program, which now involves a video presentation. 

Educational presentations and guides have been developed to assist those patients who will undergo total knee or total hip replacement surgery. These materials will give you an overview of what to expect during your joint replacement journey. Rest assured, however, that Thompson Health professionals will be there to guide you through the process step by step.
