Our Surgical Coordinator is very experienced in helping our patients from the start of scheduling your surgery all the way thru your post operative appointment. If at anytime you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call (301) 565-3305 or (301) 681-5400.
Once you and your doctor have decided that surgery will help you, it is important to learn what to expect from the surgery and how to prepare. Preparing mentally and physically for surgery is an important step towards a successful result.
We will schedule your surgery well in advance. If you have to cancel your surgery for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible. Together we will schedule an appointment for you to see your surgeon post operatively (after surgery).
Arrange for help. After a total joint replacement, you won’t be able to drive for a few weeks. Perhaps a family member or friend can deliver groceries and help run errands. If you live alone, ask someone to stay with you for a few days after surgery. By planning ahead now, you will have less to worry about during recovery.
It is very important that you feel comfortable about your surgery. Any questions you may have are important questions. Please do not hesitate to call our Surgical Coordinator at 301-565-3305. Our goal is to have you lead a healthy life.
