Post Operative Recovery

WHAT IS THIS?

We see people post operatively for many conditions, mainly Orthopaedic and assist them in their recovery so that they can return to living their life fully again.

WHY DOES IT OCCUR?

Surgery is used to correct and fix problems in our body as a result of injury, age or issues that we inherited genetically.

• Knee surgery for ligament and reconstruction of joints and joint replacements

• Shoulder reconstruction following dislocation and tendon repairs

• Hip Labral tear repairs and hip joint replacement

• Spinal Surgery

• Achilles repairs – either surgical or non surgical

• Foot surgery

WHAT DAMAGE HAS OCCURRED?
