Having joint replacement surgery may seem scary, but it is also very exciting, as it is being done to improve quality of life. The Mercy Knee and Hip Replacement e-newsletter provides patients with convenient and timely access to the information needed to help make the preparation, surgery and rehabilitation process easier and more comfortable.
This free email communication services begins 13 weeks prior to surgery with a weekly email and continue weekly until four weeks after surgery, then monthly until six months after surgery—almost a full year of information and support. Though the emails are patient-oriented, family members and friends are also encouraged to subscribe to the Knee & Hip Replacement e-newsletter.
Although each person's experience with surgery is unique and not all patients and doctors follow the same path, the most frequently-asked-questions can be answered throughout this series.
