About Your Surgery

Click on the Frequently Asked Questions below to learn about your surgery.

At Total Joint Center of St. Louis, we greatly value the importance of knowledge in reducing the amount of stress a patient experiences before a surgery. To ease the learning process, our physicians and medical staff have compiled this helpful list of frequently asked questions about what happens before, during and after joint surgery.

We understand that surgery can be an anxiety-inducing event in anyone’s life and we will make ourselves available to patients who may have additional questions or desire reassurances about the benefits, risks and rehabilitation of surgery. It’s also important to understand your rights and responsibilities as a patient.

Contact a helpful member of our staff to schedule an appointment to meet with a doctor or for any number of other services. Preparation is an important part of a successful surgery and we would like to make this process as easy as possible for every patient.
