If you ever require emergency care, go to the emergency room in your area. An ER is required to provide care to anyone regardless of where you had your procedure. Your Primary Care Provider should have no problem helping you. Let your Primary Care Provider know of your surgery so he can be prepared to assist you with your medical needs (even if it is only to stabilize the situation to allow you to travel to Dr. Kuri). If you do experience an emergency, please call your Facilitator or Dr. Kuri after you go to the hospital. They both can be reached at 1-888-223-4046 (Toll-free from US) and 1-866-782-5042 (Toll-free from Canada). Calls to the office will be transferred to Dr. Kuri in an emergency situation.
You can also connect with other banded patients in your area to find a band knowledgeable doctor that can assist you. Your Patient Facilitator is a great resource for helpful information and guidance.
