Orthopedic surgery procedures can be customized according to the patient’s unique needs.
Dr. Thomas and Dr. Bigler will assess the patient’s anatomy and individual goals to develop a personalized surgical plan. Their focus is on creating safe and predictable outcomes using a holistic approach. They will minimize the incisions wherever possible during the procedure.
They will make incisions in inconspicuous areas to ensure that any future scarring remains discreet and reduce the downtime, discomfort, and risks of complications for the patient.
Sometimes the surgeon may recommend a non-surgical procedure to the patient to minimize the invasiveness of the treatment.
Why Choose a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon?
When a patient chooses a board certified orthopedic surgeon for a major procedure, they receive a guarantee that the surgeon would have received a specific minimum number of years of training in this specialized field.
Board certified orthopedic surgeons typically invest in top-notch quality standards and best practices, adopt the latest surgical techniques and technologies, pursue continuing education, and follow the latest safety protocols to provide excellent results to their patients.
Patients who choose to work with a friendly doctor who makes them feel comfortable are likely to feel satisfied with the final results of their orthopedic surgery.
For this reason, the patient should ideally identify a doctor who is generous with their time, answers their questions in a comprehensive manner, and develops an individualized surgical plan. At the same time, they should reconsider working with a surgeon who puts pressure on them to undergo more treatment than they really need or want.
Accessibility and Customized Attention
They make sure that their patients can reach them for any clarifications or questions that they may have throughout the treatment process.
Do Your Research
It takes time to plan and execute an orthopedic surgery procedure, and even more time to recover from the procedure. In addition to investing time undergoing surgery, the patient should also spend sufficient time in conducting their research on the procedure and surgeon’s credentials beforehand.
The patient should respect their time, money, and body by being proactive and thorough. It can be a life-changing decision to undergo a surgical procedure. Therefore, the patient should try to derive the most from their consultation with the orthopedic surgeon to make sure that their decision is the right one.
