Prehabilitation for Total Knee and Hip Replacements

As a leader in joint replacement surgery St. Vincent’s Private Hospitals strive to provide our patients with excellent care through their hospital stay. The team consists of highly experienced orthopaedic staff including nursing and allied health who will educate, prepare and support you through your joint replacement journey.

In preparation for your operation, a slide show and virtual physiotherapy information class is now available online.

This helps to ensure you are prepared as much as possible and fit for your upcoming surgery. 
“Your prehabilitation is everything you actively do—mentally and physically—leading up to surgery to optimise your health and recovery and reduce the risk of complications.”

 
Please join us prior to your operation for the hip or knee replacement class (details below).

The Total Hip Replacement information class - Tuesdays at 11 am.
The Total Knee Replacement information class - Wednesdays at 11am.

Classes are run using Microsoft Teams. We recommend using a computer with a microphone, but an iPad or iPhone will also work. You do not need to download any software. If you don’t have access to a microphone to ask questions you can also type questions in the chat box. Please click on the relevant link below to join the meeting at the allocated time.
