Quality & Outcomes

99% of our patients would recommend TCO


Through our advanced data-collection software system we are able to capture patient-reported outcomes that provide actionable information used to improve care and outcomes. The data we collect encompasses every aspect of patient care and enables us to measure individualized patient improvement, optimize treatment plans and improve your overall experience at TCO.


A part of comprehensive quality care is understanding our patients from head to toe, injury to recovery. Your physician care team will ask you to complete a health status form prior to and following surgery. Learn more about pre-op and post-op forms.
