Should I arrange for a local orthopedic surgeon to do the follow-up of my joint replacement?
It is best to have an orthopedic surgeon local to you who would be available to examine you and communicate with us, should the need arise. Follow-up care can be difficult to find someone willing to do for a patient they did not operate on initially; we will assist you as much as possible.
