We’re glad you’ve chosen to take action in order to feel relief. Here’s some patient information to help you get ready for your consultation with Dr. Strickland
Take note of which activities worsen your symptoms and what makes you feel better. Keep track of recent changes in activity, whether you have new running shoes or old ones, and to determine what caused your injury.
Please bring your MRI, CT, or X-ray images on CD to your appointment. Any results of relevant blood work, reports of previous surgeries, or other health and patient information that can help Dr. Strickland form an accurate picture of your history and current injury.
We strongly encourage patients to fill out forms prior to their visit to reduce waiting time at the office. You should have received an email with a link to access your forms through our online portal. Please check your junk and spam folders if you believe you did not receive it.
If you are having difficulty with the online forms, please contact our office at 212.606.1725.
Now that you’ve gone through the procedure, it’s important to know how to care for yourself. Follow these steps to ensure a healthy healing process.
The physical therapy instructions come from the physical therapist at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Start these exercises immediately so you get moving; this helps you avoid stiffness and hopefully a blood clot. A staff member from Dr. Strickland’s office will call you the day after surgery to answer any questions you may have.
