Your Journey to Recovery: What to Expect

Prepare For Surgery

We are “taking the pain out of joint replacement” in more ways than one. We want your journey to recovery to be as painless as possible. From scheduling surgery to working with your insurance company to recovering at home, you will be cared for every step of the way.

How Do I Prepare For Surgery?

Our team works with you closely to ensure you are completely prepared on the day of your surgery, from getting preoperative prescriptions, to preparing your home, to planning your recovery.

  • Schedule a tour and pre-op appointment at Midwest Specialty Surgery Center or the hospital to learn about exercises, medications, and surgery instructions.
  • Prepare your home by moving things you’ll need within reaching distance, removing any objects or furniture that may interfere, and preparing for assistance with chores and meal prep.
