Our medical team works with each patient throughout the pre-operative, operative, and post-operative stages to help ensure the best plan for treatment and recovery.

What to do before your surgery

Before your surgery, your clinical care team will discuss all pertinent information with you regarding your procedure and address any questions or concerns you may have. They will work with you to set goals for pain management, mobility, and recovery. You will then receive instructions as to the types of pre-surgery testing and preparation required for your operation, as well as details regarding your arrival time and location.

What to do after your surgery

When your procedure is complete, you will revisit your post-surgical goals with your clinical care team. You will work together to focus on relieving pain and consider a reasonable timeline for moving, standing, and walking. Treatment plans will be reworked as necessary to facilitate comfort, rehabilitation, and a successful recovery.
