Patients are given educational materials regarding their individualized treatment plans that detail the expectations for their care. Family education and support is key to successful recovery. Additionally, we continue to our patients by helping with the selection of shoes, orthotics and braces.
The University of Arizona, in coordination with Banner – University Medicine, conducts a variety of research studies and clinical trials to support a commitment to improving patient care. As a patient at Banner – University Medical Center, you may be eligible to participate, meaning you’ll have access to new treatments, which may not yet be available to the public.
