Henderson, Nevada: Over ten years ago, orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Michael Crovetti pioneered his outpatient private surgical facility and surgical recovery suites in Henderson, Nevada. Since then, these facilities have earned a sterling reputation as a respected alternative to hospitals for joint replacement surgery. More recently, though, they have also become an important resource for joint pain patients during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Over the past weeks, we’ve all been trying to keep track the latest news of what’s been learned about COVID-19 and how it may affect us,” reveals Dr. Crovetti. “But from what we do know, it’s not surprising that the one opinion most people share is this: If you don’t have coronavirus symptoms, stay away from the hospital.
“Now, with the current health crisis taking place, it’s important for people who have been living with unbearable joint pain to know that there is a better, safer option they can choose right now rather than waiting for a hospital-based elective surgery: a private surgical facility.”
Due to the unknowns about COVID-19, most hospitals had previously canceled all elective surgeries, which kept many people from properly managing existing health conditions. Instead, medical experts encouraged referring these patients to private surgical facilities for their procedures, adding that such facilities may also offer a better surgical outcome than in a hospital setting. That is where Dr. Crovetti’s private outpatient facility excels.
“Since opening in 2010, I’ve continually refined every system and process of joint replacement surgery at our private surgical facility and recovery suites,” explains Crovetti. “My goal has always been to achieve improved outcomes, maximum safety, and physical and mental comfort for every patient – from their first appointment through full recovery. After more than 3,000 surgeries, we’ve discovered that our innovations – which also result in faster recovery times – have resulted in a uniquely successful model within the medical community.”
Having this alternative option for outpatient surgery has always been an optimal choice for patients. But during this time of medical uncertainty about COVID-19, it addresses an even more urgent concern for those in need of joint surgery.
Something worth noting is that the initial decision for hospitals to cancel elective surgeries caused at least a 4 to 6-month backlog for hospital surgeons. So, not only is a private outpatient surgical facility a timely and preferable option for joint pain sufferers, but it may be the only option for several months to come, too.
“Throughout this pandemic, we have continued to provide urgent care to patients facing greater harm or disability that would occur as a result of waiting to have their surgery,” continues Dr. Crovetti. “We also take every precaution to completely adhere to the CDC’s surgical and medical facility requirements during this crisis.”
The Coronado Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Suites serve a limited number of patients at any one time (up to six), and provide the safest and highest quality of care with a VIP experience that includes both medical services and patient comfort. Plus, this private outpatient surgery setting has always proven to cause fewer complications during the entire pre-, during, and post-surgical process than are found in typical hospital settings.
Patients not only benefit from 24-hour personalized care by highly trained Concierge Surgical Nurses who have constant access to your surgeon and internal medicine consulting physicians – but also receive around the clock access to a physical therapist and assistant – and more
How exceptional is the patient’s experience at Dr. Crovetti’s facilities? To a Patient Satisfaction level of 99.8% – an extraordinary accomplishment that’s supported by all the patient data accumulated over the past decade.
