Our joint camp is available for individuals who have decided to have hip or knee replacement surgery. This program is designed to help patients achieve a successful recovery by preparing patients for surgery and helping them understand what to expect following surgery. During our one-hour joint camp, patients and their caregiver learn about their procedure, receive instructions for post-operative exercises, and education about the recovery and going home process. Each participate is encouraged to bring a caregiver/support person to Joint Camp.
There is no cost to participate and a complimentary lunch is provided. In addition, each participant takes home a binder containing helpful information and tips to speed and ease the healing process.
Our Joint Camp meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 12 noon - 1 p.m. and rotates monthly between Brooksville and Spring Hill Regional Hospitals. For information and online registration, please visit the events section of this website or call (352) 544-6014.
