Joint Replacement Surgery (Arthroplasty) - Including Patient Information Videos
By now you will have been in for a specialist assessment at either our Elective Surgery Centre or North Shore Hospital and your surgeon has confirmed your need for surgery. You can assist in the success of your operation and recovery by being well prepared. Most of our patients go home within 3-4 days depending on the type of procedure they have had so we encourage you to give your immediate rehabilitation period your very best shot. The success of your surgery depends greatly on you. Now is the time to start planning for your return home and post-operative rehabilitation.
