How Do I Know if a Surgery Center is Right for Me?

There are many things to consider when searching for the right surgery center. Everyone is different, and it is important that you pick a place that makes you feel comfortable!

Here are some questions you can ask yourself before taking the leap:

Does this facility make me feel “at home?”

Compassionis essential in any surgery center. Getting a joint replacement surgery can be intimidating, make sure you have a good relationship with the staff. No one wants to have a surgery in a place they don’t feel welcome in.

Does this facility listen to my concerns and questions?

Respect is the golden rule. Healthcare professionals should be active listeners, genuine, and attentive. If you feel like your voice isn’t being heard, that facility probably isn’t the best choice for you.

Does this facility have updated practices and modern technology?

Quality factors into how you feel about the surgery/facility in general. Does it meet your standards? Do they progress with the practices? The surgery center of your choice should be a place you feel confident and secure in!
