Stepping Forward: Journey of Joint Wellness 

Unique to ProHealth Care, the Stepping Forward program provides joint replacement surgery patients with a comprehensive education to set expectations about the procedure. The program also eases fears by providing the opportunity for camaraderie with other patients.

Stepping Forward is taught by experienced nurses, therapists and social workers. During the one-time session, patients and their caregivers are provided with a step-by-step guide that contains information on topics such as:

  • Preparing and planning for surgery

  • Completing necessary paperwork

  • Proper nutrition to aid with recovery

  • Post-operative rehabilitation

  • Using multiple healing therapies and other methods to manage discomfort.

If your joint replacement procedure is scheduled to be performed at a ProHealth Care hospital, ask your surgeon about the Stepping Forward: Journey of Joint Wellness program.
