Surgery Center Was Best Experience

Surgery Center Was Best Experience 23November

If you give Wickenburg a surgery center, an experienced surgeon will come. And if you need a new hip or knee, Dr. Wagner will give you one.

I know this to be true. After years of limping with an eroded knee, my local doc referred me this past September to Mitchell Wagner, M.D., whose calm demeanor and willingness to take the time to explain a knee procedure convinced me the time was right for a knee replacement.  Within two weeks of Dr. Wagner’s initial consultation, I was admitted to the beautiful state-of-the-art surgery center for the procedure.  New Director of Anesthesiology Dr. Lisa Erlinger skillfully administered a nerve block, along with the anesthesia to ensure nausea relief as well as continued pain relief post-surgery. Her procedure allowed me a most comfortable postoperative hospital stay in the adjoining Wickenburg hospital wing.

The professionalism of preoperative and postoperative care added to my rapid recovery. The friendly competent medical staff joined together to provide an environment to guarantee my success as an inpatient.  The Champion Physical Therapy staff worked with me after surgery, providing important exercises and education to restore my knee to complete health.

I feel very fortunate to have all the benefits of this extraordinary medical community at my fingertips. Imagine having all this expertise right at home.

Thank each of you who brought this dream into fruition, and thank the local artists who provided me with the most exquisite, unforgettable image as I was being wheeled into surgery: an amazing stained glass panorama of western beauty. It was a first. Bev Uhl of Wickenburg
