Post-Operative Rehabilitation

The success of your surgery doesn't finish the moment you leave the operating theatre. Your surgeon will have skilfully performed a surgical procedure that is the initial step towards your successful outcome. However, you'll have to do some work in the form of exercises to optimise your results. Once you are discharged, you'll commonly require re-assessment and checking of your progress.

At Realign, we'll happily assist you in your post-operative care. We are familiar with the treatment protocols prescribed by most Surgeons in various fields like Orthopaedic, Cardiac, Respiratory, etc. We'll happily liaise with your surgeon to determine any specific requirements based on your individual surgery.
