Is it realistic to see you for surgery outside the metro Phoenix area?

Is it realistic to see you for surgery outside the metro Phoenix area?

I have been researching Doctor’s credentials and philosophy on complete knee replacement. I suffered trauma to the knee from a car accident years ago. If I have transportation to and from your facility is it realistic to schedule surgery with you if physical therapy can be performed in my immediate area (Tucson)?

dear debbie :

Of course!  We see many patients from out of state, and out of the country! (I think I am the official USA total joint orthopedist for Hermosillo, Mexico!)  In fact, I would like to develope Scottsdale healthcare as a “Travel medicine” destination for joint replacement, and may get that together soon.   Tucson is easy, because you can go home from the hospital after a few days and then return in 2 weeks to get your sutures out. rehab can be done locally in Tucson.  Call my office and ask for Gerry, she can help you make any travel arrangements that are necessary. i hope to see you soon for a consultation in the office.
