Surgery Rehabilitation

 Patients who undergo surgery usually experience a considerable emotional and physical trauma, from which they slowly recover over time. The goal of post-surgery rehabilitation is to provide highly individualized recovery plans to help patients regain optimal health and function.

Some procedures do not need special surgery rehabilitation, whereas other surgical treatments cannot be carried out successfully without a well-planned rehabilitation protocol. What procedures do typically need surgery rehabilitation?

Surgery rehabilitation centers offer a wide range of rehabilitation services devised and implemented by an interdisciplinary team, comprised of physicians, rehab nurses, speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapist, psychologists, dietitians and social workers. The best surgery rehabilitation centers furthermore offer instruction in equipment use, family education programs and home care service when necessary.
