Will the surgeon see me everyday in the hospital?

You will see the surgeon who has performed your surgery or one of his/her partners each day after surgery until all of your surgical problems are taken care of. Because we have a busy practice, one surgeon is assigned to each hospital to make rounds. We feel by having one surgeon assigned to each hospital it enables the surgeon to know the patients well and to better establish a plan if problems occur. Even if you don’t see your surgeon, (s)he will know about your progress and any problems you may have.

Your attending physician and other consulting doctors such as cardiologist and pulmonologist will also see you in the hospital if needed.
