Consistently ranked among the best hospitals in the United States for trauma, emergency, and acute cases, our center is fully equipped to treat patients regardless of their situation. Avatar International, the leader in measuring customer expectations in healthcare, has recognized Vail Health as a national award winner in healthcare service quality with two awards:

After your initial consultation with Dr. Viola, if it has been determined that a surgical procedure will be your next step towards treating your hand, wrist, or elbow injury, your next step will be to speak with our surgical coordinators to schedule your surgery and complete any remaining paperwork.
Dr. Viola provides each patient undergoing surgery a distinct set of written guidelines for pre-operative, post-operative and rehabilitation recovery. Those will be discussed and provided to you in detail upon your pre-surgery visit but they are also included here for your information.
