Phase 2

July 2013 - December 2013

In Phase 2 of the Website Renovation Project, we're not just remodeling existing spaces in our online "home." We're adding lots of new rooms!

The major goal of Phase 2 is to add a wealth of information on the many different surgical procedures our doctors perform. This will make our website a more useful resource for current patients, prospective patients, and referring physicians.

As of August 2013, each Division and Section within the Department has a “Types of Surgery” page. (Quick links to all these pages are available here.) By the end of Phase 2, each procedure listed on these pages should link to a description with an appropriate level of detail:


Level Description Example
Minimum level a couple of sentences to a couple of paragraphs Podiatry procedures
Standard level a web page Coronary Artery Bypass Graft
High level a mini website (sub-site of Dept. of Surgery site)
Parathyroidectomy

 

The level of detail we choose for a given procedure will depend on multiple factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the need for public information on the procedure, and the degree to which we wish to advertise ourselves as a provider of the procedure.
