Total Knee Replacement Guide
This is an example of the guidebook given to patients who come to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH. Patients at other Dartmouth-Hitchcock facilities will experience a similar journey during their knee replacement surgery.
Now that you have decided to have knee replacement surgery, we want to help answer some questions that patients commonly have. Our goal is to provide you with information about what you can expect before, during, and after your stay with us.
You can also open and save a copy of the PDF version of the Total Knee Replacement Guidebook.
This guidebook is divided into four sections to make it easy for you to find the information you need no matter which stage of the process you are in. Many of these subjects will also be discussed in your pre-surgery joint education class or shared medical appointment. Please bring this guidebook with you to your appointments to use as a reference tool and to make additional notes.
