Hip and Knee Replacement Surgeries

Having surgery can be one of the most vulnerable points in a person's life. Horizon is pleased to offer you these videos to help you or your loved one prepare for your knee or hip replacement.

The purpose of these videos is to help you learn what to expect while you are in hospital, and how to care for yourself after surgery so that you can have the best recovery possible.

Research shows patients receive the best care when they are active participants. We recommend you select a friend or family member to be your partner in care, someone who will be prepared to help you when you are most vulnerable. This might include assisting you with personal hygiene activities after your surgery when you are home.

If you have further questions related to these videos or your upcoming surgery, please contact your local orthopaedic unit or your orthopaedic surgeon. On behalf of the orthopaedic team at Horizon Health Network, we look forward to working with you for your upcoming surgery!
