Post-Op Care

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.

Follow-up appointment

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.
