With two advanced surgery centers available, we specialize in comprehensive orthopedic care— diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating diseases and injuries of the bone, muscle, tendon, nerve and ligament in both adults and children.
OrthoSouth Surgery Centers are multi-specialty facilities designed to accommodate a number of surgical specialties, including orthopedics, pain management and spine procedures.
Nurse Navigators at OrthoSouth are Registered Nurses who are assigned to our same-day joint replacement patients. These team members assist patients from pre-operative evaluation to post-surgery follow-up. If you and your doctor determine you are a candidate for outpatient total joint replacement in one of our surgery centers, a Nurse Navigator will call you to schedule participation in a total joint class that will discuss everything you can expect with your upcoming surgery. In addition, following your surgery the nurse navigator will remain a resource for you. She will contact you periodically to provide guidance and ensure you are recovering successfully at home.
Our surgery centers offer patients the convenience and privacy of a secure, online registration process. This information will help us provide you with the best possible medical care. You will be asked about your health history, medications and previous surgeries. It’s important to complete your online registration as soon as possible so that your medical team will have time to review the information prior to your visit. We will call you if we have any questions or concerns.
To make the most of your next appointment, we encourage our surgery patients to pre-register using the online portal.
Once your surgery date is determined, a preoperative nurse will call you prior to your surgery date with your arrival time.
To arrange for someone to drive you to the Surgery Center for your procedure, drive you home and remain with you for 24 hours after the operation.
Anesthesia and medications may slow your reflexes and result in drowsiness. Neither driving yourself nor the use of public transportation after your operation to get home is permitted. You must arrange for another responsible adult to drive you home.
