Torrance Memorial offers pre-operative educational classes for patients
and their families to attend prior to having surgery.
Hip and Knee Pre-Op
In this class, we review how to prepare for surgery, what to bring, what
to expect during hospitalization and at discharge and also how to prepare the home.
Mastectomy/Breast Reconstruction Pre-op
For women who are planning a mastectomy with or without breast reconstruction
to treat their breast cancer, Torrance Memorial offers a class to help
women prepare effectively for surgery, understand what to expect during
surgery and hospitalization, and be better prepared for post-discharge
care at home.
