 Who should come to Joint Camp?

  • If you are scheduled for a total joint replacement, you are strongly encouraged to attend a total joint camp.
  • If you are trying to decide if a total joint replacement is for you.
  • Some of the most common reasons that people have total joint replacements include:
    • Severe knee or hip pain that limits everyday activities.
    • Moderate or severe pain while resting, either day or night.
    • The ideal time for surgery is often when other measures such as medicines, exercise, weight loss and alternative therapies no longer work.
