In The Hospital
- Initial evaluation - when you arrive at the emergency room with a fracture or other orthopedic trauma, your injury is first evaluated by an emergency room doctor. If this physician determines your injury is severe or complex, a consult with an orthopedic trauma specialist is often ordered. As part of the rotation of trauma surgeons on the hospital’s medical staff, one of our surgeons will work together with the referring physician to prescribe the proper treatment. In cases of emergency, surgery or next-level treatment will happen right away — even in the middle of the night. If the injury is serious but not currently an emergency, surgery or next-level treatment will happen during normal hospital hours, possibly the next day.
- After treatment or surgery – while you recover at the hospital, a clinician from our practice will see you during rounds. The timing of our visits may vary, largely depending on the surgical schedule. When it is determined that you’re ready to leave the hospital, you will receive splint or cast care instructions as well as other information on precautions as needed. You will also receive paperwork with a request to call our office to schedule your follow-up appointment.
After Your Hospital Treatment
- Follow up appointments - we typically schedule follow-up visits one to two weeks after you’re discharged from the hospital, depending on your unique situation. During your follow-up, you may meet with the doctor who performed your surgery or treatment, or another clinician in our practice.
- Your role in your recovery - your scheduled follow-up appointments are very important to your recovery. Please plan to arrive at the right day and time. If you are in a rehabilitation center or skilled nursing facility, check with your facility. They may be able to help coordinate transportation for you.
