Is Your Patient's First Post-Op Visit to Your Local ER?

Unfortunately, more you do surgeries, more complications you encounter. Our career would be so much better if it wasn't for those midnight calls and unexpected post-operative outcomes. While a true postoperative emergency after foot and ankle surgeries is rare, some patients decide to go to an ER before their first post-operative visit with you for many different reasons. If you are in a private practice, having your patient ending up in an ER after surgery might not be a good way to promote your business. If you are in a large institution, you may get dinged, and your name may come up in their morning report. If you are a patient, you may perceive that as a failure and share the experience with others online.
