Joint Replacement School

 Helping You Return to an Active Lifestyle

For those who may be having Total Hip Replacement Surgery or Total Knee Replacement Surgery-- this program can help you prepare for surgery, recovery and life after joint replacement.

Adults who are contemplating the need for total hip or total knee replacement surgery are invited to come to school – Joint Replacement School – at Heywood Hospital.

Heywood is offering special informational sessions with an Orthopedic Surgeon, Nurse, Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist  on the second Wednesday of every month. 

 The sessions are entitled “Joint Replacement School” because they are comprehensive educational programs designed to prepare patients for what Joint Replacement surgery is like, the recovery process and life after joint replacement. Whether you are contemplating the need for surgery, or already have your surgery scheduled at Heywood or any other Hospital, this session can offer important information and resources to help you before and after your surgery. 


The programs are free of charge and will offer free refreshments and take-home materials. For more information, or to register for an upcoming session, call (978) 630-6811.
