The purpose

The OPTIONs study is a randomized controlled, non-inferiority study to evaluate postoperative care using outpatient clinic visits versus telephone calls for women undergoing surgery for pelvic floor disorders. The primary outcome is patient satisfaction using the Surgical-Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (S-CAHPS) questionnaire provided by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Secondary outcomes include safety and cost analysis for patients' direct and indirect medical costs. Women who speak and understand either English or Spanish and planning to undergo an elective surgery for a pelvic disorder will be recruited. Baseline demographics, satisfaction, and cost analysis questionnaires will be acquired pre-operatively. Randomization will be assigned at the time of discharge from the hospital. Patients will either have scheduled clinic visits at 1-2 weeks, 6 weeks, and 3 months or telephone calls by a registered nurse at these same intervals. Questionnaires will be completed at 3 months for satisfaction and cost analysis.
