Taking the next step: Pre-surgical classes

Attend one of our surgery pre-op classes

If you are having joint replacement or spine surgery, we recommend you attend one of our free pre-op classes.

Patients are strongly encouraged to bring a friend or family member who will be their “coach” during the recovery process. This class provides an opportunity to ask questions about the surgery and covers the following topics:

  • How to prepare for surgery and tips to be successful.
  • An overview of the hospital and patient experience.

You can attend an in-person class or an online webinar (Flagstaff surgeries only) where the information is presented to you via video.

  • In-person pre-op classes
