Your Personal Guide: The Patient Navigator
Stacy Powell, the Patient Navigator for the Center for Bone & Joint
Health at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, serves as a personal guide to
patients who are undergoing joint replacement surgery. As an orthopedic
nurse, she can provide you with a wealth of helpful information designed
to make the entire process as simple and comfortable as possible. Whether
you have questions about pain management, medication, physical therapy,
or community resources, the navigator is here to help you prepare for
surgery, recovery, and beyond.
Total Joint Replacement Class:
"I was amazed by how accurate and helpful the class was," says
Tim Neil, hip replacement patient. "I knew exactly what to expect
both before and after surgery. They have it down to a science."
The Total Joint Replacement Class is a free, two-hour session that is designed
to educate patients about the joint replacement process. Led by our Patient
Navigator, the class provides detailed information about knee and hip
replacement surgery so you can feel comfortable and informed before, during,
and after your procedure.
