Where Can I Go for Medical Imaging and X-Rays?
The need for medical imaging or/and x-rays is rarely considered an emergency, but your doctor may request that you undergo imaging to determine the extent of harm you have suffered. There are 10 medical imaging and x-ray centers throughout Houston, including Houston Medical Imaging, Delta X-ray, and the North Houston X-Ray and Imaging Center.
What If I Need Surgery?
The prospect of surgery can be very scary for many people, but knowing that your surgery will take place at a hospital near your Houston home can be more comforting. There are more than a dozen surgery centers around Houston. Your doctor or specialist will likely refer you to a surgeon that works at a specific hospital, or to a hospital that specializes in a specific type of surgery. Luckily, you will probably have plenty of time to prepare for your surgery and figure out exactly where it will be held before operation day.
