While recovering from joint replacement surgery in The Bunting Center at Mercy, patients:
- Wear their regular clothes while in the hospital
- Participate in an intensive rehabilitation process that prepares them for a safe transition to home
- Participate in group activities, including group physical therapy, group luncheons and discharge education classes
- Receive daily newsletters to explain the day’s activities
Following discharge from the hospital, patients can contact The Joint Journey Coordinator if they have any questions or concerns. Patients and their coaches are invited to a Joint Journey Reunion Luncheon a few months following surgery. Patients and coaches enjoy lunch and discuss their hip and knee replacement experiences and progress.
