Frequently asked questions to the Xpert Clinics
1. Do I need a referral?
For treatment at Xpert Clinics you always need a referral from your general practitioner or another medical specialist. If you have a referral for the hospital, and have not yet had a first appointment in the hospital, you can use this referral.
2. What can I go for?
You can contact Xpert Clinics for specialized care for the hand and wrist. Not only for common complaints such as osteoarthritis of the thumb or carpal tunnel syndrome, but also for rare disorders, complex traumas, emergencies or a second opinion.
3. Do photos and scans need to be retaken?
You can also schedule a consultation appointment without the results of your previous examinations. If necessary or desirable, the results of these investigations can be requested quickly. Do you have the research results yourself? Then take this with you.
4. Can I ever use my hand normally again?
Unfortunately, this cannot be predicted with certainty. In part it depends on the situation before the operation and your adherence to treatment. Sometimes I already know before the treatment that full recovery is not possible. In this I am always very honest, also towards you.
