Joint Renew Camp

This fun, free program is an ideal way to learn what you need to know about joint replacement surgery at HSHS Sacred Heart or St. Joseph's hospitals — before, during and after a procedure.

Joint Renew Camp is designed to help you become more informed, so you can feel confident about your decision and get the most out of it. It’s about getting you well and on the road to recovery—at your own pace. Our goal: get you back up on your feet, and back to what you like to do most.

Topics covered include:
  • preoperative guidelines, including what to pack
  • an overview of your surgery, so you know what to expect
  • anesthesia
  • pain control
  • medication
  • physical therapy
  • occupational therapy
  • discharge planning
  • recovery after your hospital stay
Who should attend?

You as the patient and your coach (the person who will be helping you at home after your surgery) should plan to attend Joint Renew Camp two to four weeks prior to surgery.
