Our program case managers will assess and plan for each patient’s individual care needs, and act as liaison for postoperative care between the doctor’s office and the hospital. The case manager also works with patients to answer questions and direct them to useful resources within the hospital and community, and coordinates the patient’s discharge plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with as much information and encouragement as possible to keep them educated, motivated and involved. Preoperative classes are led by a certified orthopedic nurse and cover the entire surgical experience. These classes introduce patients to the program and its many components while emphasizing the patient’s own role in the recovery process.
Free educational classes provide opportunities to learn about various conditions and available treatment options. Everything at the Orthopedic Program at Corpus Christi Medical Center is designed to promote patients’ sense of wellbeing, so they feel better and recover more quickly.
