At Loma Linda University Medical Center, we know that patient education is crucial to whole person wellness. So, before and after your surgery for your urologic condition, our staff provides consultation and education for optimal results and your piece of mind.
Why pre-operative education?
Studies have shown that patients who are mentally prepared and relaxed before surgery have a higher rate of success and faster healing. You can actively prepare for surgery by talking with your doctor and surgical team and by making arrangements for care during the healing process.
Why post-operative education?
While breakthroughs in surgical technology like robot-assisted surgery and other minimally invasive procedures have cut down on recovery time, it is still very important that you prepare yourself to let your body rest and heal after surgery. Our medical staff will guide you through the healing process and will provide you with specific directions for personal care after your surgery.
