Patient Resource Center

Get ready for your orthopedic surgery and your return to a fuller, more active life.


Before your surgery

  • If you are scheduling joint replacement surgery, attend one of our free Get Ready for Joint Replacement Surgery educational sessions with your loved ones or caregivers. You’ll tour the state-of-the-art facilities at Mercy Fore River, see a private patient room, and find out what to expect before, during and after your joint replacement surgery. See our 2018 Joint Camp Schedule.
  • If you are unable to attend a live Joint Camp Class, please sign in to watch a video representation of the material.
  • As an alternative to Joint Camp, you may review materials related to your surgery here.


Your surgery and hospital stay

  • Your personal nurse manager is always available to help you navigate your care choices. If necessary, your nurse manager can assist you in arranging home health services or in securing extended care or inpatient rehabilitation.
  • Keep loved ones close by at affordable rates when you arrange a stay at Gary’s House, a program of Mercy.


After you return home

  • Access convenient outpatient rehabilitation services with highly skilled physical and occupational therapists.
