Total Joint Replacement Pre-Op Teaching Class

Swedish Medical Center offers free classes 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.
