The site was initially developed through a partnership of The Arthritis Society, GTA Rehab Networks and the Total Joint Network.

A website specifically designed to provide practical advice and support for patients and their families as they move through the joint replacement experience is now available.

Called myjointreplacement.ca, the site walks patients through the joint replacement process, starting from the pre-operative visit through the surgery itself, and finally to recovery and rehabilitation,  providing a wealth of information to Canadians who will be having knee, hip or ankle replacement surgery in the near future.

Each year, thousands of Canadians undergo joint replacement surgery, mainly because their joints have been damaged by arthritis.

The site was initially developed through a partnership of The Arthritis Society, GTA Rehab Networks and the Total Joint Network.
