Postoperatively patients have the ability to participate in a mobile app platform, which allows for patients to engage with either myself or my physician assistant following the surgery. There may be simple questions that often don't require a phone call to the clinic, but can be responded through a text message. Occasionally these questions are after hours or on the weekends, and therefore the patients find a benefit with direct communication with their surgeon. The app itself also engages with the patient with vignettes, daily stories of what to expect, and tips or tricks to improve swelling, pain, as well as provide the physical therapy videos. This patient interaction mobile platform is a significant step up in allowing our patients to recover more uneventfully and quicker.
