We are dedicated to ensuring that each of our patients is well-informed about their condition and procedure at every stage of their experience with us, and while we do most of the work, you are an important part of your care team — your specialty is self-care! By making sure that you understand your pre- and post-operative instructions carefully, asking all the questions may have, and then carefully following your instructions, you can help ensure that your procedure and recovery go smoothly.
Pre- and post-operative instructions are a vital part of your treatment. If we provide you with instructions, it's because there are certain steps you need to follow before and after surgery to make sure that your treatment is successful, and your outcome optimal. We want our patients to be completely satisfied! The pre-operative instructions will help you prepare for any procedure you may have at our practice, while your post-operative instructions will be more specific to your surgery and will help you navigate your recovery, heal well, and remain as comfortable as possible. For your convenience, we also include an overview of these more specific guidelines here. We will be happy to answer any questions not addressed in these instructions.
