Surgery FAQs


Overview

We understand that having surgery is a very stressful event in a patient’s life. The anxiety and fear usually impacts people far before the solution of surgery becomes an option, and can weigh heavily upon the person’s mental and physical well-being. Typically a traumatic event initiates the feelings of worry, fear, and confusion that people experience when their body is no longer functioning as they are accustomed. We know this is one of the scarier moments in people’s’ lives, which is why we fully understand the value of patient questions and concerns. As a result, we want to be as transparent and supportive as possible, from our first point of contact, on through your operation and recovery. 

The more questions you ask, the more you will come to understand about your condition and the necessary steps we are going to take together to get you back to feeling healthy and physically capable. So if you have recently injured your shoulder or knee, and believe you may need an operation to restore functionality, strength, and stability to your injured joint, please start with some of the educational materials and frequently asked questions available on this page.
