Welcome to the Nova Scotia Orthopaedic Surgery Patient Information Site

The My Surgery website is for people in Nova Scotia who are having hip or knee replacement surgery. This website helps you to prepare for your surgery, your stay in the hospital, and your recovery at home. Click on a topic below or on the right to get started.

This website is a collaboration of the Nova Scotia Department of Health and the Nova Scotia District Health Authorities. Production of this website has been made possible through a financial contribution from Health Canada. This website is intended to provide you with helpful information about your health condition, surgery and recovery, but should not take the place of directions or advice provided by your doctor, surgeon or other health professionals.
