Despite surgical remedies gaining prominence among medical practitioners, it continues to remain in the heart and minds of patients as a perilous approach in treating their respective conditions. While surgeries do carry that extra risk of things going downhill, with an able surgeon presiding the task and deft post-operative care, it is possible to maximize the benefits of surgeries in helping patients recover from several critical diseases.
Post-operative care is an important part of any surgery, and it’s advisable to plan on your post-operative rehabilitation before going into the surgery. It is recommended that you consult your doctor and physiotherapist to understand what your life after surgery will look like, so that you are both mentally and physically prepared for the road ahead. The recovery process post-surgery could look different for different individuals, and hence, consulting a rehabilitation professional to establish a proper post-operative care plan will help you recover faster.
Major surgeries like total knee replacement, total hip replacement and brain surgeries leave patients with limited physical and cognitive abilities. Trained rehabilitation professionals work closely with patients to reinstate their physical abilities, coordination and balance via a wide range of therapies. All these critical surgeries entail prolonged hospitalization, leaving patients with impaired social skills. Postoperative rehabilitation is highly effective in helping patients regain their strength while guiding them back to regular life. It also plays a key role in pain management and care coordination in an hygienic environment that otherwise wouldn’t have been possible at home.
