Scotland Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in the area which offers Joint Camp, a FREE educational program designed for patients scheduled for hip or knee replacement surgery.  The program typically lasts one and a half hours and is held in the Community Health and Rehabilitation Center, on the hospital campus.

When a patient is scheduled for joint replacement surgery by one of the four OrthoCarolina orthopedic surgeons, he or she will be contacted by OrthoCarolina Scotland to register for a Joint Camp session.
