Costa Rica Post-Operative Care
Our main concern is to make sure the patient recovers safely from the surgery. The patient will have a nurse’s personalized attention during the overnight stay at the hospital, to take care of the Post-Operative needs and look after any necessity the surgical process may create.
During the patient’s stay at the Recovery Center or hotel, he or she will be visited by the infirmary staff and the internist to verify the healing process as well to bring solutions to the patient’s possible necessities. The patient’s will have severals appointment with the surgeon for follow up.
We would be glad to contact the patient’s closest relative to give him/her updates on the patient’s condition after the surgery if the patient wishes us to do so.
We could provide tours and activities if the patient wishes to do so, as long as he/she obtains the surgeon’s previous authorization.
Once the patient has completed the recovery process, and is ready to return to his/her country; medical reports and records will be given together with recommendations that the patient will continue to follow when returning to his/her daily routine.
As part of the program, we give our patients a three month post-surgery follow up. This information will be given to the patient at the time of his/her arrival.
