At Hill & Ioppolo Oral & Dental Implant Surgery of Lubbock, our practice is focused on providing high-quality and reliable care. We want our patients to know that they are getting not only the best care but also a treatment plan that they can trust. Our methods are tried and true, which means patients will know what to expect after their first consultation. In line with our commitment to meeting our patients' expectations, we provide all of our patients with instructions for pre- and post-operative care.
Pre- and post-operative instructions are a fantastic tool for patients of all ages to prepare for their procedure. The pre-operative instructions given to you will contain guidelines to follow to ensure that we can perform your surgery as planned. Your post-operative instructions will be more specific to your treatment and help you rest comfortably and heal properly after surgery. These instructions are just one more way that we can help our patients trust in the care that we provide. You can find both written and video forms of our instructions in both English and Spanish on the pages below.
Queremos que nuestros pacientes conozcan exactamente qué esperar en su cirugía y en su recuperación, por eso proveemos a todos nuestros pacientes instrucciones pre- y postoperatorias. Las instrucciones pre-operativas contienen instrucciones para ayudarle a prepararse para su cita y asegurarnos que podemos realizar su cirugía según lo previsto. Las instrucciones postoperatorias son procedimiento-específicas y contienen pasos más detallados para seguir para ayudarle a tener una recuperación rápida y cómoda.
Les pedimos a todos nuestros pacientes que revisen todas las instrucciones dadas a ellos antes de la cirugía de modo que puedan tener cualquier pregunta contestada antes del procedimiento de la anestesia. Además, permite que los pacientes vuelvan a casa después de la cirugía y conozcan lo que se espera de ellos para asegurar conseguir los resultados óptimos. Nuestra meta es ayudar a que la experiencia de cada paciente con el tratamiento y la recuperación se lo mejor posible, y proveyendo estas instrucciones útiles nos ayuda a hacer tan.
