Are you considering a knee or hip replacement? Are you looking for answers to your questions? Mayo Clinic Health System offers a free information session for patients who are considering a knee or hip replacement operation. Mayo Clinic experts explain all aspects of the care process, including the rehabilitation program, Joint Camp, in which you’ll participate during your stay. In addition, the presenters discuss muscle-strengthening exercises you can complete at home prior to your operation to help with recovery and rehabilitation.
