Out of an abundance of caution and in alignment with the CDC and the recommendation to avoid large gatherings, we are suspending all Total Joint Replacement Pre-operative Education classes until further notice. While these sessions will not occur in-person, we will have an option for you to attend a Zoom session with our Ortho/Spine Navigator, Winnie Elias, RN. If you are not able to attend a Zoom class you can reach Winnie by phone and email to offer you support and guidance at (714) 378-7264 or  WElias@memorialcare.org. Our Total Joint guidebooks are also available online here or can be mailed. Thank you for your understanding as we observe a period of “social distancing” to ensure everyone’s health and well-being.

Your joints have taken you far. Now, it’s time to go farther. At the MemorialCare Joint Replacement Center at Orange Coast Medical Center, we offer a complete spectrum of care including hip and knee replacement, to support your long-lasting results. From expert orthopedic specialists, to being ranked among the nation’s top 10 percent orthopedic hospitals, to providing Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery—a groundbreaking new technology that allows for finer precision, better outcomes and a quicker recovery time—you’ll find the joint care you need to move forward. We also encourage same-day movement, allowing most patients to go home same day or  less than two days after surgery so future adventures are as close as your next step. Here’s to feeling like yourself again.

In the pre-operative class, you’ll learn what to expect before, during and after your joint replacement surgery. Zoom sessions are free and registration is required. Please call (714) 378-7264 to register.
