Understanding the Procedure

The team at the Orthopaedic and Spine Center at Touro understands that even elective surgery such as joint replacement of the knee, shoulder, or hip can be an unsettling prospect. People don’t know what to expect. They trust their doctors and nurses, but are still apprehensive about the pros and cons of replacement and reconstructive surgery.
At Touro, patients are well-informed during each step of the joint replacement process. Through the use of community outreach seminars, multimedia educational tools, pre-op classes for you and your family members and patient guide books, you will know what to expect and when. We take every step possible to make your surgical experience stress free and pleasant. Keeping you informed is the key.

For more information on our spine, knee, hip and shoulder procedures and surgeries, please visit our Understanding the Procedure pages to learn about the causes of pain and the expectations of replacement surgery. We also invite you to learn more about the Touro Difference and our excellent orthopaedic team ready to help you with your medical needs.
