Flinders Private Hospital hosts monthly education sessions for people who are booked for surgery to have a hip or knee replacement.
These evenings are very popular and are designed specifically for anyone who is booked for surgery but also valuable for those members of the community who are interested in learning more about what a joint replacement procedure entails.
