Preoperative Education

To prepare for your surgery, we offer an in-person class or online video to help you plan and understand what to expect before, during and after your surgery. Preoperative education not only helps patients recover faster and reduce the risk of complications and readmissions, it gives you and your caregiver peace of mind knowing what to expect throughout each step of the care journey.


Preoperative Education Classes

Join us at OrthoColorado Hospital for an in-person class that allows you to ask questions and meet some of the people you will encounter throughout your stay. Classes are held weekly, and we recommend attending a class, two to three weeks prior to your scheduled surgery. We encourage you to invite friends or family who might assist during recovery.
