Knee Surgery

Being a nurse on the ortho floor, my friends wondered how I could let my colleagues take care of me. I had no second thoughts about having it done at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. My colleagues were all great -- they let me rest when I needed it, and helped me walk and do my exercises. It was a good experience and I would do it again if I needed to.  -Mike Perryman, knee replacement patient

Supporting You Along the Way

Our team is here to give you all of the information you need to make the best decision to fit your lifestyle and your goals.

We offer a joint replacement education program at all of our locations. This free education class, or “joint camp,” is designed for patients to help them learn what to expect before, during and after surgery and how to prepare ahead of time.

After surgery, we offer physical therapy options to give you the best outcome possible. Our nurses are here to answer your questions along the way as well.
