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.
