At FOCOS, patients benefit from Education Programs including pre-operative sessions for those undergoing surgery. Classes are taught by our Registered Nurses, in collaboration with our Physical Therapists and Dieticians. In these classes you will learn the general overview as to what to expect when coming in for surgery at FOCOS as well as exercises and information pertaining to your specific surgery.
Classes provide detailed information on what to bring to the hospital the day of surgery, what to expect the morning of surgery, recovery and pain management.
Classes are generally scheduled on your pre-operative testing day through the Admissions Office. You are encouraged to invite family members and friends, who might be assisting during your recovery period, to join you in attending the class.
