Arrange for transportation:  

  • You will need transportation to all clinic appointments and therapy visits
  • Discharge usually occurs one day after surgery

  • Many insurance companies will not cover inpatient rehabilitation unless you have other qualifying medical conditions
  • This will be discussed further at the Joint Replacement Education Class
