Explore Total Joint Replacement Resources from Raleigh Orthopaedic

The goal of the Raleigh Orthopaedic Total Joint Pre-Operative educational materials is to improve each patient’s functional outcome following surgery. The information below will cover ambulation, transfers, assistive devices, adaptive equipment, pain management, diet and weight control, pre-operative and post-operative exercises, balance, return to work and activity, post-operative rehab milestones, and precautions. You can choose to review them at your leisure prior to your scheduled total joint replacement procedure at REX or our Raleigh Orthopaedic Surgery Centers in Raleigh and Panther Creek.

Knee Replacement Resources

If you are preparing for a knee replacement procedure at Raleigh Orthopaedic, we encourage you to review the resources listed below. Our slide shows provide all of the information you will need before and after your procedure, with the main points listed in the following document. These resources provide important information that you will want to keep in mind ahead of your surgery. You should also take some time to review our list of pre-op exercises to help strengthen your muscles before your knee replacement. 

Hip Replacement Resources

Those scheduled for a hip replacement procedure at Raleigh Orthopaedic are encouraged to explore the resources listed below – a slide show with extensive pre and post-operative information, take aways from the slides, and pre-op exercises. Although physical therapy is required after your total joint replacement surgery, performing a set of exercises beforehand can help to strengthen the muscles.
