Patient Follow-Up Protocol

We require at least one in person visit after surgery. This may be done anywhere between 1 - 7 days after surgery. Our out of town patients can do this on the first day after surgery then immediately travel home. After that, f/u for out of town patients is done by telephone on the following schedule:

  • One week
  • One month
  • Three months
  • Six months
  • One year
  • Two years

Patients are given Dr. Petersen's personal cell number after surgery and are encouraged to call or text anytime if they have a concern. Texting by cell phone is very convenient and many patients will text pictures of wounds for their own peace of mind although it is not required.
