Spine Surgery Patient Education Materials

To help ensure optimal outcomes, patients scheduled for spine surgery will undergo a comprehensive preoperative education program, which includes:

  • A nurse practitioner, who will explain the progression of a patient’s hospitalization from admission to discharge
  • A case coordinator, who will be assigned to help patients plan for discharge
  • A physical therapist, who will explain the course of therapy during hospitalization and identify equipment patients will need during recovery at home
  • An occupational therapist, who will teach patients how to use adaptive equipment, which will assist them with activities of daily living
