The orthopedic staff is dedicated to you and your pre-operative needs. Total joint replacement patients are offered a thorough education class at no cost. The class will give you a better understanding of what to expect, before, during and after surgery. It is important that you attend one of these classes. The class is held every other Tuesday at the Outpatient Rehabilitation Facility also located in the Kroger shopping center.
Aside from the educational class, this all-inclusive day is reserved to meet your individual needs. We offer all preoperative testing services necessary to ensure you are ready for your scheduled surgery. All necessary testing is offered the same day as the educational class. The day is customized to complete each patient’s individual pre-operative requirements. Tests offered include, but are not limited to, blood work, chest X-rays and EKGs. If you do not have a referring physician, we can provide one for you to ensure you are cleared for surgery. Testing is done at Fairfield Medical Diagnostic Services, located at 1159 East Main Street in Lancaster, in the Kroger shopping center.
