The Sports Medicine Clinic at the Stanford Medicine Outpatient Center brings together a unique team of athletic trainers, physicians, physical therapists and sports scientists to collaboratively provide the best possible medical care for athletic injuries and illnesses.
After your surgery, you will be taken to a Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) where our nurses will make sure that you are comfortable. Most patients stay in the PACU for an hour or two and then are discharged home. If your doctor decides that further observation is necessary, or that you need more time to recover from your surgery, you may be admitted to the hospital as an inpatient.
Once you have returned home, it is highly recommended that someone stay with you, at least for the first night.
