Joint Replacement

Total Joint Experience

Our expert doctors, nurses, and other professionals thank you for considering Dosher Memorial Hospital for your hip, knee, or shoulder replacement.

Our goal is to prepare you for this experience and help you set expectations for a speedy recovery. We strive to make your experience as pleasant as possible. We believe an educated patient will recover quicker and get back to normal life activities. So, we're now holding patient education sessions the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month, 11 a.m. to noon, in the second floor conference room at the hospital. Class includes lunch and there are several reserved parking spaces for participants.

This free seminar will help patients know what to expect in several aspects of care:

Preparing for surgery
The day before surgery
The day of surgery, including pain management
Discharge from the hospital

What is incentive spirometry?

Nutrition and surgery
