Surgery Information:


Thank you for choosing Dr. Leslie Vidal and The Steadman Clinic as your Orthopedic provider. Please review the surgical information below to ensure your preparation, as you approach your surgery date.

Dr. Vidal and her team look forward to getting you back to the life and activities you love.

Day-of-Surgery Game Plan:

Surgery is an all-day event so please plan accordingly.

If you have a morning surgery scheduled, you might want to consider a hotel room in the Vail/Edwards/Dillon area the night before surgery to avoid any travel stress the morning of surgery.

We have a Concierge Team that can assist with these arrangements; their number is (970) 479-5898.

In general, patients will roll into the OR, 1.5-2 hours after their check in time.

After surgery, patients will recover in PACU for 1-1.5 hours before being released. Patients must be discharged to a responsible party following their procedure– be sure you have arranged a ride home by a responsible adult; you cannot drive yourself home from surgery.


Post-Op Appointments:

Dr. Vidal’s team will set up your first two post-op appointments at the time that your surgery is scheduled, approximately 2 weeks and 6 weeks post op. She sees patients in both the Vail and Frisco locations.

Please contact us at, (970) 476-3375 if you need to change of modify your post-op appointments.

Scheduling Surgery/Rescheduling Surgery:

Please feel free to reach out to Nina Zalenski at 970-476-3375 to assist with scheduling or rescheduling your surgery.
