Orthopedic and spine patient navigator

Unique to Aventura Hosptial and Medical Center is our orthopedic and spine patient navigator. This trained nurse guides patients and their families through each step of the process. Our patient navigator offers emotional and educational support in addition to case management.

The patient navigator assists patients and their families with every aspect of care, from answering last minute questions before the day of surgery to guiding and updating family members of their loved one’s progression. After the surgery, the navigator helps patients verify that all orders have been met and explore anything that may be missed to assist in improving a higher level of satisfaction.

Our patient navigator continues the relationship with the patient with post-discharge phone calls to review opportunities for future activities and answer any residual questions.
