Spine and Joint Replacement Surgery Pre-Op Class (Flagstaff)

Spine and Joint Replacement Surgery Pre-Op Class (Flagstaff)

FMC's spine and joint replacement surgeons highly recommend this class to better prepare patients and their families for upcoming surgery. 

Patients are strongly encouraged to bring a friend or family member who will be their "coach" during the recovery process. Participants should review the Patient Education Guidebook they received from their surgeons or during the pre-admissions appointment before the class. Beverages will be served. This free class provides an opportunity to ask questions about the surgery and covers the following topics:

  • How to prepare for surgery
  • An overview of the hospital and patient experience
  • A guided tour of the Spine and Joint Surgery Center

Patients who are unable to attend this class in person, may instead view the online webinar where the class information is presented via a pre-recorded video. Learn more.
