Because surgery is a major life decision, you need reliable, accurate information to help you make an informed, educated choice. The Guidebooks below provide a detailed overview of the coordinated services offered here at the Longfellow Center for Joint Replacement and are designed to provide you with a thorough understanding of what to expect prior to surgery, during surgery and after to help reduce the stress and anxiety associated with this type of procedure.

Whether you may be a candidate for a hip or knee replacement, each guide provides valuable information on a wide range of topic areas, including an overview of our treatment programs, surgical timelines, calendars and medication charts, preoperative medical requirements, suggested pre-and post op exercise and rehabilitation programs, and much, much more.

In addition to these comprehensive guidebooks, Longfellow Care Team Members offer engaging, interactive community outreach seminars, provide a comprehensive pre-op educational class for patients, family, and coaches, provide educational displays of answers to many frequently asked questions, and brochures explaining the procedures and our Total Joint Program.

If you feel that you might qualify as a candidate for a joint replacement procedure, please contact us. For your convenience, we are available during regular business hours each week at 617-499-5882.
