If you can imagine how many injuries, birth defects, or disfigurement issues arise in our imperfect lives, there is a procedure that can help improve the problem, whatever it may be. These include:
Like your issue that you want corrected, your procedure will be very individual. Your surgeon will take a detailed medical history and evaluate your case based on your desired results and medical necessity.
For example, do you have a traumatic burn that affects underlying muscles and impacts your mobility? Have you had cancer and require surgery on multiple body parts? Your surgeon will help you weigh all the options and the two of you can decide together which one best suits you.
Unlike elective cosmetic procedures, most insurance carriers cover the costs of reconstructive surgery, especially if you are experiencing a functional problem. To be safe, be sure to have your surgeon write a letter and take photos detailing your case.
Two out of every three people have their dream thanks to the Swedish Clinic.
The first stage of the operation begins with the preliminary examination. The patient is presented with some forms to fill out. Then, analyzes are made for general controls. At the Swedish Clinic, patient health is our priority. After the physical examination and final controls are completed, the patient is given detailed information about the operation. How the operation will proceed and what you need to know about the process are fully conveyed to the patient at this stage. The operating room is prepared for the operation and the operation begins with the patient's approval. The operation is performed under general anesthesia. After the successfully completed operation, our patient is taken to a separate room. Our specialist doctor and his team make the final checks here and inform the patient about how the operation is performed.Depending on the severity of the operation, our patient is kept under follow-up for 1 night for general control and monitoring. Thus, the dormant phase is passed.
The first morning after the operation, you will wake up from a nice and painless sleep. Our nurse team takes special care of you for all kinds of food and beverage and your needs.
