Planning for Orthopedic or Spine Surgery

Being well-prepared helps our patients achieve positive outcomes, including the lowest infection rates in Virginia, faster recovery times and lower readmission rates.

LewisGale provides education and resources to help you make surgical decisions and get the most from your treatment. Our joint and spine specialists will explain your options, the steps in your process and your recovery path. You and your caregivers are welcome to ask questions along the way.

  • Once you and your doctor have determined your individual treatment plan, take time to learn as much as possible about your procedure by attending the appropriate presurgery classes offered at LewisGale and reading the educational materials provided. Our staff will direct you to the resources that will help prepare you for surgery and recovery.
  • The preadmissions nurse and our central scheduling department will help you schedule any tests and treatments required prior to your procedure. This may include filling out required forms, completing a health history with a preadmissions nurse and having lab work and diagnostic tests performed.
