The Goal of an Orthopaedic Navigator

The goal of the orthopaedic navigator is to ensure all patient needs are met, including but not limited to: patient/family education, discharge planning, and acknowledging physiological and psychosocial needs. Below is the process that the orthopaedic navigator will take a patient through on a typical surgery.

Pre-Assessment

At your pre-assessment appointment, you will meet a medical doctor who has been consulted by your surgeon to complete a perioperative assessment for medical clearance. The medical doctor will work closely with you and your surgeon to help reduce the risk of surgical complications. Nursing staff and the orthopaedic navigator will complete a nursing assessment and provide patient education specific to your elective procedure. Additional labs and tests may be ordered at this time to ensure your readiness for surgery. Any non-surgical issues will be addressed at your pre-assessment appointment and through your hospital stay by a medical doctor.

If you have any questions about the pre-assessment, please call 812-996-5220.
