Medical Center of Trinity: Rehab Support Services

Our licensed physical therapists and speech-language pathologists support patients who are undergoing surgery or have certain conditions, such as communication deficits or lymphedema.

Preoperative Education for Orthopedic Surgery

We want our patients to be as informed as possible before orthopedic surgery. As part of our patient education program:

  • We explain to our patients what they can expect before, during and after undergoing joint replacement or spine surgery.
  • A licensed physical therapist guides patients on a tour of the nursing unit where they will reside after surgery.
  • Patients become familiar with our staff in the Spine and Orthopedics program, including nurses and physical therapists.

Learn more about our surgery and spine and orthopedics programs.

Our support groups help patients gain insight by sharing their experiences with others:

  • Chatterboxes is for people suffering from communication deficits as a result of a cerebral vascular accident or other neurological disorders. We encourage caregivers and spouses to attend. Led by our speech-language pathologists, the group meets every other Thursday from 3:00pm - 4:00pm at Medical Center of Trinity.
  • The Lymphedema Support Group, led by a licensed physical therapist, meets on the third Thursday of each month from 3:00pm - 4:00pm at Medical Center of Trinity.
