Why choose AtlantiCare?
How we fight infection
There are several ways we prevent infection, including:
- Before surgery, we test you for bacteria that could cause infection. If bacteria is present in your body, we take special steps to eliminate it.
- Several days before surgery, we give you special soap to clean your surgery site.
- In the operating room, we have access to the latest surgical technology to reduce problems during surgery.
- We apply topical antibiotics as needed.
- We use special skin dressings after surgery.
Together, all of these steps give AtlantiCare an exceedingly low infection rate in musculoskeletal surgery.
