Patient Education is a key part of the core mission of The Surgical Clinic. The Surgical Clinic’s Surgeons and its staff are dedicated to the type of Patient Education that makes certain that every patient understands what is going to happen and what their options for care might be. The Surgeons and key Ancillary Staff members have created educational videos that patients can watch at their leisure from home AND now The Surgical Clinic has integrated the Krames ONLINE Library so that patients can read detailed information about their condition, surgical options and recovery expectations.
The Surgical Clinic believes that patients who realistically know what to expect at every step of the care process will be less stressed and much more confident about how they will gear themselves to recover and return to normal life. This partnership of education and patient involvement in their care is a hallmark of the patient-centered care that is embedded in The Surgical Clinic Mission.
Surgeons at The Surgical Clinic have selected various links to specific material in the Krames ONLINE Library for patients to easily access from the website. These are data sheets and easy to read explanations of the condition that patients may be treated for as well as providing realistic information about what to expect in the recovery process. In addition to the various educational pieces that The Surgical Clinic’s care team has selected there are thousands of other items in the library that patients are welcome to explore.The library can be accessed 24 hours a day/seven days a week.
In addition to the Library, Surgeons and Key members of the staff have created patient education videos are embedded on the website. These are videos created for the patients of each of the various Surgeons at The Surgical Clinic and address various diagnoses for which patients might be treated. New videos are created frequently. Patients are encouraged for subscribe to The Surgical Clinic’s YouTube Channel to follow new videos as they are released.
