Ortho Connect is a free, telephone-based peer support program through which people newly referred for bone and joint surgery are matched with trained volunteers who have already undergone similar surgical treatment. Volunteers are trained to listen, support, and encourage, and to refer clients to community resources for information and assistance based on individual client needs and desires. Ortho Connect enables patients to learn, understand and become comfortable with their upcoming surgery, supported by a person who knows what they’re going through.
