Helpful Resources

National patient education videos for hip and knee joint replacement surgery have been developed by the National Orthopaedic Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) Collaborative Project Team, in conjunction with Waitemata DHB.

The videos provide valuable information for people who are due to have hip or knee replacement surgery and complement our written resources.
