Preparing for Sports Medicine Treatment

Preparation for your sports medicine treatment depends almost solely on your diagnosis and your Advanced Foot & Ankle Surgeons’ treatment plan, although here are some basic rules of thumb:

  • The first time you visit, we will need a copy of your insurance card, a list of any known allergies, in addition to any medical records relevant to your condition. If you do not already have your records, we can request them on your behalf from your prior physician(s).
  • Prior to your treatment, it is highly important that you follow your doctor’s orders, whether this entails physical therapy or some other preparation.
