YOUR FIRST VISIT
What to Expect:
At your first orthopedic appointment with Dr. Stewart, we will have you fill out a new patient form that will allow us to learn more about your specific symptoms and your general health. Please bring a list of any medications you are currently taking so we can accurately document it in your medical record. When Dr. Stewart comes in to see you, he will have all the necessary information to educate you on your specific diagnosis. Learn more about your first visit with your orthopedic doctor here.
Beginning your Journey:
After you have been looked at by one of the orthopedic physician assistants and Dr. Stewart, he will carefully explain your diagnosis, demonstrate any abnormalities on the imaging studies and layout various physical, medical and surgical treatment options for your specific joint condition. We will collaborate with you to create an individualized treatment plan that suits you and your family’s specific needs.
The Day of Your Procedure:
You will most likely need to have a driver arranged for at least 24 hours following an orthopedic surgery. When you come in you will need to fill out some paperwork before the procedure. Make sure you read and follow all of the instructions regarding pain medication here. This will allow the healing process to run quickly with little to no complications.
