Follow-up visit after surgery
Approximately two to four weeks after your discharge, you will have an appointment to be seen by your cardiac surgeon in the Cardiovascular Center on the 3rd floor of the Preston Building, 732 Harrison Avenue. At that visit, your surgeon and/or nurse practitioner or physician assistant will review your progress.
Directions to outpatient Cardiac Surgery Clinic
The Cardiovascular Center is located in the Preston Family Building at 732 Harrison Avenue. Park in the garage in the Doctors Office Building and take the elevator to the ground floor. Walk across the driveway to the Preston Building. Take the elevator to the Cardiovascular Center on the 3rd floor. The Center is located on the 3rd floor. Do not go to the Cardiothoracic Surgery office located in the Robinson Building.
Follow-up visit with your primary care physician or Cardiologist
We ask that at some time during the two to three weeks after your surgery, you also make an appointment to see your cardiologist or primary care physician who will be resuming your care. Please schedule this when you go home.
If you are admitted to another hospital in the month following surgery, please have a family member call our office at 617-638-7350 if, for any reasons, you are admitted to another hospital in the month following your discharge.
