About This Event

  • Event Type:Education
Details:

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center’s Joint Replacement Program is certified by The Joint Commission. We are certified for providing excellent care of the elective hip and knee replacement patients. We use protocols and guidelines proven to help patients get well quicker. Patients return to their normal activities sooner after surgery.

The Joint Replacement Program requires patients and their “coach” to attend the education class before surgery. The “coach” is the support person who will help the patient after surgery. This is usually a family member or friend that you arrange.
