How an Advanced Walk In Clinic Can Reduce Your Stress During Surgery

by Natalie (SU)
So you’ve scheduled your surgery and you’re wondering what you can expect. How long will it take me to recover? When will I be able to increase my activity? What kind of pain can I expect? How will I feel after surgery and what do I do if I think something is wrong? These are all normal questions when you are anticipating surgery, whether it’s minor or major, elective, or emergency. One key to successful surgery is to ask as many questions as you can think of before your scheduled procedure. A happy patient is an informed patient. And one of the questions you should pose is “what do I do if I have a problem or concern after surgery?” If the answer is that your orthopedic surgeon has the option for same-day and walk-in appointments, then you are in great shape. Having the advantage of an advanced walk-in clinic to address your postoperative needs can greatly reduce your stress during, and after, surgery, leading to faster and more complete recovery.
