Important Surgery & Joint Replacement Information

Flagler Health + offers each patient undergoing total knee or hip replacement an educational guide. Your physician has discussed information with you regarding your surgery. This guide is designed to help you further prepare for surgery by giving you information you will need to achieve the best outcome from your joint replacement. It is our belief that well-prepared patients achieve the best surgical results. Physical preparation, education, continuity of care and pre-planned discharges are important to creating the best results. This guidebook exists to
give you and your caregivers everything you’ll need for a rapid return to a healthy, active lifestyle.
