If your family had an injury, where would you want them to go for physical therapy? What about you? Where would you want to go? Physicians and their immediately family members frequently come to us for care. As health care providers, that speaks volumes about our work.
As an orthopedic surgeon, you want the best outcomes for your post operative patient. You worked hard to perform a perfect surgery. Why take a chance with poor rehab and ruin it? A great surgery with poor therapy will reverse all of your hard work. Great therapy outcomes after your surgical procedure will only compliment you, your practice, and your work.
Referring patients to the right Physical Therapist is a positive reflection on the referring physician.
