Orthopedics Pre-Op Classes

Total Joint Replacement Pre-op Classes

Swedish Medical Center offers free orthopedics classes in Denver to help you prepare for total joint replacement surgery. We recommend that each patient should attend one class prior to surgery to help you understand what to expect while at Swedish and to improve the success of your recovery.

"Explaining the physical therapy to me in the class was helpful, it took some of the worry out of having the surgery."

The class helps hip, knee and shoulder patients:

  • Understand your upcoming surgery
  • Prepare for your surgery
  • Know what to expect when you go home
  • Manage your daily activities after surgery

You will also meet members of your orthopedic care team, including nurses, case managers, physical therapists and occupational therapists. The class is offered free of charge, but please schedule your class at least one week before your surgery.

The class is held every Wednesday from 1 - 3 p.m. 

Complimentary valet parking is available at the main entrance.


Use online class registration or call 1-866-7SWEDISH (1-866-779-3347) to register over the phone.
