PREP - Preparing For Hip Or Knee Replacement

In 2012, the Surgical program created PREP school, which is the Patient Road for Education and Preparation. PREP school helps patients requiring a hip or knee replacement to know what to expect, how to prepare, and what they can do to ensure a smooth recovery. PREP school has helped to improve patients' lengths of stay in hospital and the percentage of patients who are able to return home, without the need for inpatient rehabilitation.
