Total Joint Replacement: The Joint Academy

Ohio Valley surgeons, nurses and physical therapists developed the Joint Academy class to teach patients and their caregivers how to prepare for total joint replacement surgery.

This class helps patients understand what can be expected before, during and after their knee, hip and shoulder joint replacement procedure.  Patients gain a better understanding of the total experience before their surgery, which helps reduce anxiety, increases comfort levels and helps patients recover as quickly as possible.
