Your Rights and Responsibilities
When a patient undergoes any type of surgery, it is incredibly important to understand his or her rights and responsibilities before starting the process of treatment. Understanding rights and responsibilities empowers the patient with knowledge of what he or she can expect and can be a key tool in preparing you and your family for the process of surgery. Please review the documents on this page. Contact us with any questions you may have. At Total Joint Center of St. Louis, we greatly value the importance of patients having as much information at their disposal as possible before beginning a medical procedure.
