Joints in Motion
Inova Fair Oaks Hospital offers free pre-op classes (in-person or online) for our joint replacement patients.
Patients will learn important information about:
- The role of your personal support person / coach
- Preparation instructions for bathing, food and drink, medications, clothing and more
- What do expect after your surgery
- Recovery and physical therapy
Option A: In-person Classes
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic all in-person classes have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. Contact the Orthopedic Navigator, Karen DuTell, MSN, RN, ONC, with any questions about preparing for your surgery at 703-391-4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Option B: Learn At Home with Videos and Quiz
If you're not able to attend the class in person, we encourage you to watch our three videos (links below) with your support person or coach to learn more about how to prepare for your surgery.
Please make sure to take the required quiz afterward (link below) to test your knowledge of pre-op and important safety procedures.
