Preparing for Orthopedic Surgery
When it comes to orthopedic pain, G2 Orthopedics and Sports Medicine’s Dr. Goradia does not believe in a one size fits all approach to treatment. He evaluates all options: repair, replacements, outpatient surgery, and nonsurgical treatment options for each patient. Each patient is fully evaluated with care and attention so he can make the right diagnosis. Treatment plans are completely individualized for all of our patients with various knee, shoulder, elbow and ankle injuries.

1-2 Weeks After Surgery
You will need to see a physician to check your incision and have sutures removed. This can be done by your local physician or you can return to see Dr. Goradia. You will also be provided a prescription with instructions for you to begin Physical Therapy with someone in your area. Our office will schedule your initial therapy appointment.
4-6 Weeks After Surgery
You should return to see Dr. Goradia with an update note from your therapist. Depending on your progress and the type of surgery performed, further follow-up appointments with Dr. Goradia will be discussed.
