Joint Replacement Patient Education

Pre-Procedural orientation available online and in person

All joint replacement surgery patients are asked to participate in a special pre-procedural orientation. The orientation is available online below. We encourage you and your coach to watch the video presentation together.

If you would like to attend an orientation class in person, either instead of or in addition to viewing the video, you may schedule a date and time with the Pre-Procedural Patient Liaison by calling 703-776-2000 (after the language option, press 1 to schedule your class). Classes are offered at the Inova Professional Services Building located on Inova Fairfax Medical Campus.
