Surgery is an invasive procedure that carries inherent risk. Prior to obtaining written consent, your surgeon will discuss the surgery’s risks, benefits and alternatives. Additionally, any risks related to anesthesia will be addressed by a member of the anesthesia team. Please speak with your surgeon or a member of their team if additional clarification is necessary.
Getting full range of motion, strength, and flexibility back after surgery usually takes time. That is where pre-operative exercise, education, and post -operative physical therapy programs come in – to ensure you are physically and emotionally prepared for surgery and to maximize your recovery after surgery.
The non-surgical treatment options include rest, medications including analgesics and antibiotics, injections, and physical/occupational therapy.
This varies depending on the type of procedure undergone, the type of work you do and can range from a few days to a few months. Return to all activities, sports and exercise can take up to four to six months. Your doctor will advise you depending on your health condition.
With just about any orthopedic surgical procedure, including joint replacement surgery and revision surgery (replacing a worn-out artificial joint from a previous surgery), you’ll have some pain and swelling. Your surgeon and clinical team will work with you to effectively manage your pain and ensure you’re healing as expected.
