Operation Education

Helping you prepare for surgery

Operation Education, our presurgical education program, helps make your surgery as smooth as possible and answers your questions along the way.

At Operation Education, you’ll learn what to expect during your hospital stay, how you can assist in your recovery and what to anticipate after you go home.

You’ll also have an opportunity to ask questions or address concerns regarding your surgery. We encourage you to bring a family member or friend with you who may help care for you at home after surgery.

Freeman is committed to providing quality patient care and maintaining a close partnership during your recovery. We offer Operation Education to patients undergoing:

  • Total hip replacements
  • Total knee replacements
  • Hysterectomies
  • Mastectomies
  • Colon and bowel surgeries
  • Neurosurgeries of the spinal cord, skull and scalp, and spine
  • Cardiothoracic surgeries

Operation Education takes place in the physical therapy gym across from rooms 495 and 496 on the 5th floor of Gary & Donna Hall Tower at Freeman Hospital West.
