Beyond Anxiety: A Blueprint for Fear Free Joint Replacement
Joint replacement surgery is often considered when non-surgical treatments are no longer effective. If you have fears about a joint replacement procedure, about pain, the unknown, or what recovery will be like, you are not alone. While many patients feel apprehension going into a joint replacement operation, the outcomes can be life changing! Furthermore, technological advances, such as robotic arm assisted surgeries, and improved materials in surgical implants have led to higher success rates.
One of the best ways to lessen anxiety around a joint replacement procedure is to educate yourself with information from qualified healthcare professionals A good recovery begins with thorough preparation before your “big day.” A comprehensive joint replacement program will not only prepare a patient for surgery, but will also provide you with a recovery team to support you as you heal. Join Chelsea Beard, RN, BSN, Dosher Orthopedic Nurse Navigator, and Dosher Physical Therapist Tim Ryan, PT, as they discuss “all things joint replacement” and help demystify this increasingly common medical procedure.

Come visit the Dosher table, and make sure to attend this seminar (no advance registration needed) if you are considering joint replacement!
