Joint Replacement Surgery

Free Class

Each year, more than 1 million people make the decision to undergo joint replacement surgery. At North Kansas City Hospital, we understand having surgery can be an overwhelming experience. We’re here for you every step of the way, providing excellent care, positive support and resources that will help you understand what to expect before, during and after your joint replacement surgery.

Attend Our Class

Our free, one-hour Total Joint Class covers everything from preparing for surgery to what will happen at the hospital to what you can expect when you return home. The Knee & Hip presentation shared in the class is a valuable quick-reference tool that contains reminders and important phone numbers.

Watch Our Video

Watch our joint replacement video for advice on actively participating in your care before, during and after your hospital stay. Pay close attention … you’ll be asked to complete a 5-question quiz at the end of video.

Complete Planning Guides

Planning ahead for your surgery will relieve any anxiety and help you focus on what’s truly important … getting back to your normal routine. Our Total Hip Replacement Surgery and Total Knee Replacement Surgery planning guides contain convenient checklists, pre-surgery exercises, information about what to expect from the surgery and post-surgery recovery recommendations.
