Joint Camp Orientation Class

All patients scheduled for joint replacement surgery at Huntsville Hospital are strongly encouraged to attend Joint Camp Orientation.

Joint Camp Orientation is held every Monday at 9:30 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. on the 4th floor of the Huntsville Hospital Orthopedic & Spine Tower (200 Sivley Road). For those who prefer to complete their orientation remotely, we offer a conference call option the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month starting at 9:30 a.m. To register, please select a date from the calendar below. 

Our FREE Joint Camp Orientation class is held before your surgery. Classes are taught by nurses and clinical staff and cover many important topics, including:

  • Patient and caregiver (coach) role in the program
  • Therapy exercises to start prior to surgery
  • Routine and activities during your hospital stay
  • Anesthesia options for surgery
  • Therapy options after leaving the hospital (home is the best place to return after surgery)
  • Equipment and/or supplies to assist with recovery
  • Details about life after joint replacement
  • Information on medications, clothing and special needs
  • Getting to know other patients going through Joint Camp
