Recovery and Reminders

Please limit the number of family or friends who come with you. Seating is very limited.

If you are traveling more than 30 minutes, put one or two pillows in your car so you can elevate the operative extremity.

Females will need to give a urine sample for a pregnancy test pre-operatively unless they meet the exclusionary criteria.

If you or your family need the services of a foreign-language or hearing impaired interpreter, please call to arrange for one at no cost to you prior to the day of surgery.

You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions (please follow these instructions). Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home. If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room. A nurse from our center will call you within two days after your surgery to check on your recovery.
