Summary

Postoperative follow up is necessary following any surgical procedure and has been conducted in the same manner since the field of surgery began. The study will determine feasibility and patient satisfaction of innovative postoperative virtual clinical encounters utilizing mobile video conference technology for women undergoing pelvic reconstructive surgery through a randomized controlled trial.

Description

This will be a prospective randomized control study comparing postoperative virtual clinical encounters versus traditional in-office postoperative visits in women undergoing pelvic reconstructive surgery. The postoperative experiences of both groups will be assessed via surveys. Virtual Clinical Encounter Group: - Receive video-conference call from office nurse 48-72 hours post discharge from hospital - Receive video-conference call from fellow and/or attending physician approximately 30 days (4-6 weeks) from surgery -- Complete telephone survey one day later - Have in-office postoperative visit with fellow and/or attending physician approximately 90 days (10-12 weeks) from surgery -- Fill out surveys after office visit Traditional Office Group: - Receive telephone call from office nurse 48-72 hours post discharge from hospital - Have in-office postoperative visit with fellow and/or attending physician approximately 30 days (4-6 weeks) from surgery -- Complete telephone survey one day later - Have in-office postoperative visit with fellow and/or attending physician approximately 90 days (10-12 weeks) from surgery -- Fill out surveys after office visit
