1. Does the surgery center have outcomes information available to me?
Every orthopaedic surgery center tracks the quality of its outcomes based on surgical results, length of hospitalization, patient satisfaction, and other criteria. However, not all facilities share this information.
At the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Maine (OICM), we’re always ready to share outcomes and help you understand how our record compares to outcomes at other orthopaedic centers and hospitals.
