Your post-operative care is specific to your surgeon and your condition. Your surgeon will prepare specific post-operative directions for you, and these will be given to you during your pre-surgical visit.
When to contact your doctor
Call us immediately at (602) 393-1010 if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Excessive bleeding, swelling, or pain
- Signs of infection: fever of 101 degrees or more, red streaks on skin, pus from the wound (some light drainage is expected)
- Persistent nausea or vomiting
- Intolerance to the pain medication
You can call this number at any time. After regular office hours, your call will be directed to the physician on call.
You will also be scheduled for a post-surgical check-up, generally 1-2 weeks after your surgery. If you don’t have an appointment already, call us at (602) 393-1010 to schedule one.
