Post-op care locally after surgery at Mayo?
Hello – I am considering traveling to Mayo for a second opinion on my shoulder. I won't bore everyone with all of the details but do have a question. If someone has an orthopedic surgery at Mayo, are they able to get post-op care (i.e. follow up appointments) with a local specialist versus having to travel back to Mayo? I am a Mayo patient for my polycystic kidney and liver disease (PKD/PLD). And after having two local OB/GYNs attempt to figure out a problem I am having, I have also started seeing a Mayo OB/GYN. I had testing done here with results sent to Mayo and have used virtual appointments with plans to visit the doctor later in the year when I am there for my annual PKD/PLD appointment. I haven't had any surgery at Mayo though so I wasn't sure how that is handled in terms of having a surgery there but then handing post-op care, physical therapy, etc., off to someone at my local level. Any insight is appreciated!
