Every surgery should be a success and we believe that success starts with properly preparing patients. Our evaluations are intended to ensure patients have a clear understanding of the risks and responsibilities of their elective surgery. Making sure patients know what to expect before, during, and after surgery is critical for the best outcome possible.
Take Your Life Back
We want you to take your life back and that’s why we offer individual counseling as well as preoperative evaluations so that, following surgery, if you are having pain that is difficult to handle we already have an individual plan set up that you can access easily.
It’s all about getting your life back and taking back the power which will help you manage your pain until it’s no longer an issue and you’re back to the life you love.
Our focus has been and will continue to be providing individualized care designed to address your personal needs. It is never acceptable to live with pain. Pain robs your life of joy and robs your life of meaning. Nothing is more important at Physician Partners of America than helping you get back to a pain-free life.
Three Parts to Every Surgery
- Preoperative – before surgery
- Intraoperative – during surgery
- Postoperative – after surgery
Preoperative evaluations are exactly what they sound like: Talking together about what your surgery will entail and what to expect afterward.
The evaluation often covers how long a patient can expect to spend recovering, what kind of support they may need during recovery, what level of relief is reasonable to expect following surgery, and what are the related risks. This consultation will give you a recommendation for therapies that will help you decrease your risks after surgery.
During the evaluation, a checklist form is completed that covers all related topics to ensure each and every patient is prepared thoroughly. The checklists are sent to your surgical team along with relevant notes to provide consistency of care. As for insurance companies requiring evaluations for coverage approval, the proper documentation can be provided for them as well.
