Depending on the type of joint replacement surgery you are having, your road to recovery may follow a different route. That said, following the steps outlined by Enloe’s Total Joint Replacement program will help ensure that you get back to the lifestyle that makes you happy.

The health and well-being of our patients has always been our top priority, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As a result, we have canceled our in-person A Joint Effort classes until further notice. You’ll find the educational materials normally provided in that class here, along with our contact information.

Please review this booklet before your pre-operative appointment with your surgeon. It is important that you know your precautions and practice your exercises before you’re admitted to the hospital. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.
