Making Hand-to-Shoulder Care More Accessible
Finding quality healthcare with affordable and transparent pricing can be a challenge, even for those with medical insurance. For example, at traditional outpatient facilities, patients are usually given general anesthesia, which drives up the cost of their procedure and requires patients to have assistance getting to and from their surgery. The costs of outpatient procedures can be quite high, and there are often hidden charges that add to the total cost. Some common hidden charges include fees for anesthesia, recovery room use, and laboratory tests. These hidden charges can make a big difference in the total cost of the procedure and can be a nightmare for patients budgeting for medical care. But things are different at The Hand to Shoulder Clinic in Fort Worth.
What makes The Hand to Shoulder Center Different?
With state-of-the-art operating rooms on-site, surgeons can control costs and provide a superior level of care. One of the cost-saving aspects available is their use of local nerve blocks, eliminating unnecessary intravenous sedation whenever the procedure allows. Not asking a friend or family member to be available to drive back and forth also relieves patient stress.
"We can make people just as comfortable as they are in the OR; in fact, most people would say even more so," said Dr. Lesley, an Orthopedic Hand and Upper Extremity Surgeon at the clinic. "We get to cut out all the unnecessary expense, and it's been extremely rewarding to give people the exact same or superior care here in our ORs.
"By leaving the hospital and general anesthesia behind, The Hand and Shoulder Clinic surgeons are making access to convenient quality healthcare and affordable, transparent pricing a reality for patients.
"It really opens us up to a whole new demographic of patients who have high deductibles or have no insurance," Dr. Lesley added.
