Patient Education

What to Expect Guides

One of our primary goals at Columbia Orthopedics is ensuring that patients are educated and informed about their care. Knowing what to expect before, during, and after your orthopedic procedure is a key part of the recovery process.

It is important to remember that these resources are only general guides. Not all patients have the same medical conditions or needs. Your physician or therapist may make changes from these books - and their changes take precedence.
