The EXCEL Program offers a total joint class for knee and hip replacement patients.  As a part of the program, patients are required to attend a free 90-minute pre-surgical session taught by a nurse practitioner, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and athletic trainers prior to your surgery.

Please reach out to our team if there are scheduing conflicts and we will accommodate. The class provides information on what to expect before, during and after surgery, and includes the following topics:
