At Wadley Regional Medical Center, our team is committed to making your surgical experience as positive as possible. That’s why we provide the Total Joint Replacement Program – a program that is designed to expand your and your family’s knowledge and understanding of all aspects of your joint replacement surgery. As part of our program to inform you of what to expect before, during and after your procedure, a Patient Guide manual will be given to you by your orthopedic surgeon and at Wadley an informational class is offered each week for new patients. Our program goal is to build your confidence in your decision to have total joint replacement surgery while providing you with high quality health care and to facilitate the best possible surgical outcome.
