Joint Journey


All patients having hip or knee joint replacement surgery are encouraged to attend Bethesda’s Joint Journey class. Led by a registered Nurse, this informational session explains what to expect before and after your surgery.

This class is offered on the following days and times:

  • Every Monday at 10:00 a.m. at Bethesda Hospital West in the Education Classroom
  • Every Thursday at 10:00 a.m. at Bethesda Hospital East in the Sand Dollar Room

Pre-op lab testing can be done as long as the class is within seven days of your surgery and your class is held at the same hospital as your surgery.

One family member or friend is encouraged to attend with the patient. Registration is not required.
