El Paso, Texas — Surgery can be scary for anyone, but those with diabetes know that surgery may come with additional complications. To help patients know what to expect and how to prepare for surgery, El Paso Specialty Hospital will host a seminar on Thurs., April 19, from 6 to 7 p.m.
Diabetics are at higher risk for infection, slower healing, pneumonia, and other issues when undergoing surgery, but there are steps individuals can take to help prepare their body. At the seminar, EPSH surgeon John Taylor, D.P.M., F.A.C.F.A.S., F.A.P.W.C.A., will walk through these steps and give advice on how to best prepare for surgery, as well as what to watch for during recovery.
The seminar is free and open to the public and will take place at El Paso Specialty Hospital at 1755 Curie Dr., in the Pain and Spine Lobby. RSVP to attend by calling (915) 730-6757.
