It’s natural to have questions and concerns before you have total joint replacement surgery. That’s why Intermountain offers a free online informational class where you will learn important information and tips to make your surgery and recovery as smooth as possible.
The online class focuses on what you need to know about:
- Preparing for your surgery
- What will happen when you come to the hospital
- What is involved in the surgery
- Possible complications
- The roles of everyone involved
- Controlling pain and being safe
- Planning for your recovery at home
All patients who are scheduled for a joint replacement surgery are encouraged to participate, as well as their caregivers who will help the patient at home following surgery.
Class length is about an hour.

Once you have confirmed the date of your surgery with your surgeon that your surgery is to take place in the next 7 days, then reach out to the total joint coordinator at the hospital where you will be having surgery.
