Patient Centered Approach for Improved Care Outcomes
First, we listen – to your individual situation as it applies to any specific pain and limits to mobility or function. We carefully assess your specific needs, order the appropriate imaging tests and then together develop a plan for treatment and recovery. Our team also provides rehabilitation expertise for a more positive recovery and long term health.
Understanding family dynamics is an important part of our process. We talk through goals and expectations for any orthopaedic issue or condition and how the surgical treatment or healing process may affect your spouse or caregiver. We make recommendations for optimal healing through a planned recovery process. If a post-acute care facility may benefit your personal situation, we can provide options at our St. Mary’s d’Youville Pavilion.
