Joint Renew Camp
8:30 AM - 12 PM | Registration is required.
St. Joseph's - Chippewa Falls

St. Joseph's Hospital is offering a new program to educate patients who will undergo joint replacement surgery. St. Joseph's Hospital's Joint Renew Camp is designed to give knee and hip replacement patients the information they need to get back on their feet and into their home environments.

The program is free, and patients are encouraged to attend two to three weeks prior to surgery. St. Joseph's Hospital will host the program twice a month. Registration is required. The camp is set for the first and third Wednesdays of each month with some exceptions.

"Joint Renew Camp helps familiarize patients with the surgery and what they can expect afterwards," said Chris Klay, Rehabilitation Services director at St. Joseph's Hospital. "Oftentimes patients have a fair amount of anxiety before surgery, and it has to do with the unknown. They're not sure what to expect. Joint Renew Camp decreases patients' anxiety and helps them feel better about the entire process."

 The program at St. Joseph's Hospital will cover a variety of topics including:

- Preparing for surgery

- Preparing your home for post surgery

- Pain management

- Post-Anesthesia Care Unit

- Equipment used

- Physical and occupational therapy

- Mobility techniques

- Using a walker

-  Self-care techniques

Patients are invited to bring a family member or friend to Joint Renew Camp to serve as his or her "coach." Joint Renew Camp provides individuals and their coaches with an educational opportunity in a supportive group environment.
