Individual orthopedic, neurologic, and spine conditions, treatment and recovery times may vary. Every patient’s experience with interventional pain management procedures, arthroscopic, orthopedic, neurologic and spine surgery differs. All surgical procedures involve some level of risk. If directed to pursue surgery by your physician, prompt action is advised, as waiting may reduce the efficacy of surgical treatment. Patients may be required to rest 48 hours or longer post-surgery. Should the patient be provided surgical recommendation; additional time may be required prior to the procedure for insurance authorization purposes. Postoperative instructions are individual and vary from patient to patient. Follow your doctor’s advice. Interventional and surgical procedures are reserved for those patients medically cleared and scheduled for invasive medical treatment. Some patients’ individual medical conditions may require additional testing of cardiac or pulmonary function or could require investigation into metabolic or hematologic status necessitating lab studies that are performed by a third-party service provider. While your medical provider may recommend such providers, Florida Orthopedics and Neurosurgery is not responsible for the results of, nor the charges or collections associated with the diagnostic procedures facilitated by a third-party provider. Medicare, Medicaid, and most commercial insurances are currently not accepted.
The opinions expressed in any patient testimonials are by patients only. Patients are not compensated for testimonials. Individuals providing testimonial of personal experience or outcome are not qualified medical professionals. These opinions should not be relied upon as, or in place of, the medical advice of a licensed doctor or other health care provider. Individuals’ medical histories, disease pathology, anatomy, and tolerance to any medical intervention are unique. Past outcomes from other patients are not to be relied upon as the result of any similar contemplated medical intervention.
