From Phoenix Medical Consulting:
Surgeon On Call is exactly what every surgical patient needs! Like having immediate personal access to your surgeon at all times, Surgeon On Call is a mobile app designed by a surgeon as a self- help guide following one's surgical procedure. While hospitalization and formal nursing care after surgery are becoming unnecessary in many cases due to improved surgical techniques, questions and problems still arise. Increasingly, the patient is in charge of his own care at home following surgery. Common questions, concerns, complications and their solutions are compiled from 18 years of surgical practice. A touch-screen interactive format simulates an "on-call" physician encounter and includes such topics as dealing with fever after surgery, diagnosing wound infections, assessing various abdominal pains after surgery, and procedure-specific symptoms and warning signs for which contacting one's own physician or emergency care is recommended. Surgical procedures such as hernia repairs, gallbladder removal, laparoscopy, appendix removal, cyst/lump removal, and others are included. If you or someone you know is facing surgery, Surgeon On Call is a must-have mobile app which supplies information, alleviates anxiety, and puts you in charge of your surgical recovery!
