About Expert Orthopaedics Singapore
The success of an orthopaedic procedure depends on good communication between a patient and a surgeon. Avoid a surgeon who has no time to listen to your concerns and expectations or one who is not easily accessible to offer post-surgical support.
Here's how to choose the right Orthopaedic, although we recommend that you come straight to our clinic.
It is important that your surgeon is available through several communication channels such as telephone or email.
This will make it easy and convenient for you to access medical advise and information whenever you need it. Most qualified surgeons like Expert Orthopaedics are affiliated with professional bodies and institutions hence it's important to consult with these institutions which can recommend certified surgeons who can help you.
The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, for example, ensures that its members maintain the highest standards of ethical and professional medical practices and that they meet the standard patient care requirements. The experience of your orthopaedic specialist in another important consideration. Orthopaedic surgeons specialize in a certain field hence you must make sure that your doctor of choice has the skills and experience necessary to treat your condition. A doctor who specializes in knee replacement may not be necessarily qualified to treat an injury that results from a car accident. To get the proper care and treatment, you need to get the right doctor.
The treatment philosophy of most orthopedists differ, some may want to get right into surgery while others prefer physical therapy to minimize the risks associated with a surgery especially in car accident cases. It is important to consider a course of treatment that is most convenient for you. Recovery after an orthopaedic surgery will also depend on good care and rehabilitation. Your orthopaedic specialist should also be involved in the therapy process hence it is important that treatment and rehabilitation are offered under the same roof. While you can get physical therapy elsewhere, you will receive better care and treatment when your doctor is involved in the therapy. This will also save you time and much needed energy since you will not have to travel to multiple locations.
The internet is a powerful research tool with several health cares related sites where you can check statistical data and reviews about orthopaedic care providers. While the internet is a good source of information, it is not guaranteed that the information you get is accurate and credible. Counter check the facts and information to make sure that you are not dealing with quarks who lack the necessary qualifications and experience required to perform an orthopaedic surgery.
We are confident that you will see how our clinic is the best option for you to resolve your injuries as soon as possible.
We look forward to having you here at Expert Orthopaedics Singapore!
