Methodist Dallas Joint Academy

Preparing joint replacement candidates – mentally and physically – for surgeryThe Joint Commission Gold Seal

The Hip Joint Replacement and Knee Joint Replacement programs at Methodist Dallas Medical Center have both been certified by The Joint Commission.

Methodist Dallas Medical Center offers orthopedic services including total joint replacement surgery, using the latest minimally invasive techniques, to replace painful hip joint, knee joint, or shoulder joints damaged by injury, deformity, or degenerative diseases such as arthritis, to restore mobility and quality of life with less pain and recovery time.

Better informed, better outcomes for joint replacement surgery

The Methodist Joint Academy is a free educational workshop that helps prepare joint replacement "students" both mentally and physically for upcoming joint replacement surgery, the best possible surgical outcome, and a faster return to normal daily activity.

Held on the Methodist Dallas Medical Center campus, the Joint Academy offers a comfortable learning environment with a handful of fellow orthopedic patients. The one-day program includes:

  • A concierge to greet and guide you to your classroom
  • Priority access to required pre-op testing
  • Express registration to eliminate delays the day of surgery
  • Engaging classroom instruction about what to expect from pre-op, joint replacement surgery, and recovery – taught by Methodist Joint Academy clinical specialists
  • A tour of the orthopedic floor, designed specifically for the needs and comfort of joint replacement surgery patients
  • Discussion with a small group of fellow joint replacement patients to build camaraderie and provide motivation and support after hip or knee surgery
  • A "uniform" – t-shirt and shorts with the Methodist Joint Academy logo
  • Free validated parking
