We speak to every patient post-operatively in the recovery room. Additionally, we make every attempt to speak to the family and friends that accompany you for your procedure. Unfortunately, sometimes we are not able to speak your family and friends; frequently, they are not in the waiting room. It is common for patients under the influence of anesthesia not to remember post-operative conversations.
Because of these potential problems, we have provided post-operative instructions for home care:
- weight bearing status
- when to remove dressings
- first post-operative follow up appointment, etc.
As always, if you have any further concerns or questions please feel free to contact our office.
