Follow-up postoperative calls to reduce common postoperative complaints among urogynecology patients.

Summary of "Follow-up postoperative calls to reduce common postoperative complaints among urogynecology patients."

The purpose of our study was to identify the most common reasons why postoperative urogynecology patients called their surgeon within the first 6 weeks of surgery. We hypothesize that implementing a follow-up postoperative call (FPC) policy would decrease the number of patient-initiated calls within this postoperative period.
