Surgeons working at multiple hospitals



Recommended Posts

This thread is absolutely NOT about any particular surgeon. I see many patients saying that so and so Dr operates at multiple hospitals (3-6) like it is a badge of accomplishment.

Here in the states the top surgeons operate at one, maybe two hospitals. To me jumping around to 5 different hospitals shows instability. Why wouldn't you just pick one since you are comfortable with your surgical team, or maybe two if you want to give clients an option?

This question has been driving me nuts. Please no mention of specific surgeons.

I work in the medical field and actually many doctors especially specialist work out of several facilities. I don't know much about the doctors in Mexico, I just want you to know that it is not all that uncommon here in the US.

I've also worked in the medical field for 15 years and have worked for many fabulous surgeons. Sometimes they work in different hospitals if they are a rare specialist or work in hospitals owned by the same health system or are very far apart (we have some specialists who come from Childrens in Pgh to Wheeling because Wheeling doesn't have enough patients to sustain that type of full time surgeon)..... but normally they have an office near the one hospital they work at, especially if the hospitals are 15 minutes apart.

My (Nameless) surgeon only works at two hospitals. I'm glad, he is as booked as ever already.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
