During the pre-admission testing visit, each patient participates in an hour-and-a-half educational session with the nurses and therapists. This session provides an overview of the entire recovery and rehabilitation process starting immediately after surgery through discharge from the hospital.
Patients have many questions and concerns about surgery, especially regarding pain control, healing and resumption of normal activities. This education session assures that the patient knows what to expect and can begin the process free of any excessive concern or anxiety. By discussing issues such as mobility, pain control, and the discharge process during the first visit, we are able to facilitate the transition from surgery to resumption of normal life, and an enhanced quality of life.
