Pre-Operative Classes

Yale-New Haven Hospital offers educational classes to patients who are scheduled for hip or knee replacement, hysterectomy and certain open-heart surgeries such as valve replacement or CABG (coronary artery bypass graft). These classes are free of charge.

They are designed to help patients, family members and caregivers better understand what happens during surgery, how to prepare and what to expect during their hospital stay and after discharge

Our Admitting staff will make every effort to coordinate your pre-operative class with your pre-admission testing visit.

Directions and parking information are available online in our Visitors section.
