Leaving the Clinic


The exiting medical file will be given and explained to the patient the day before departure. The operation and hospitalisation reports will be sent to the attending physician at the same time the patient leaves the clinic.

For patients who need a convalescence period in a reeducation centre, the clinic will take care of administrative requirements and conditions of transfer to the centre.

The post-op follow-up

The appointment for the post-op consultation will be made according to the type of operation undergone.

Systematically, the practice will contact the patient one week after his return home to make sure of the good evolution, the good understanding and the execution of the post-op needs.

The Darcy Orthopedic practice recommends that the patients who have a prosthesis go for a clinical and radiological check-up on the anniversary date of the operation and then every three years (this check-up can be done by the family’s GP).
