Preparing For Surgery

Preparing for Surgery

Our patients report feeling better prepared and confident facing their surgery after attending our pre-operative information seminar. During this session you will learn how to prepare for surgery, what will transpire during your surgery and hospital stay, and what will happen after you leave the hospital. You will learn how Norwalk Hospital utilizes the latest technology in surgical and pain management techniques to improve your outcomes. For your benefit, the Pre-Operative Joint Replacement seminar is mandatory for all patients undergoing this surgery.  The seminar is held every other Tuesday from 10:00 - 11:30 in the 8th floor rehab gym of Norwalk Hospital. Patients and their Coaches (caregivers) are advised to register for this session as soon as possible after scheduling surgery.  Plan to attend this session 4-6 weeks prior to your surgery. For more information, call Deborah Canet, Joint Replacement Coordinator 203.852.3024.

Once your surgery is scheduled you will be contacted by EMMI Solutions by phone or email. You will be given instructions to set up an account which enables you and your family to access informative videos in preparation of your procedure.
