We Have Answers To Your Questions
When is the right time to have orthopedic surgery?
A doctor may or may not recommend orthopedic surgery. It depends on the severity of one’s injury. It’s also important to consider what kind of surgery you’re having, and this information is best obtained from your surgeon.
What can I expect immediately after orthopedic surgery?
After any orthopedic surgical procedure, which involves repairing—bones, ligaments, or muscles—patients usually require care for several hours in the recovery room before they get discharged and head home. There’s a possibility that you may be unable to move your foot or leg for several weeks after surgical treatment and rehabilitation. Ensure you are receiving the best professional care for your orthopedic problem to make it easier for you to recover and prevent further complications.
How long does it take to recover from orthopedic surgery?
It depends on what type of orthopedic surgery you have had and how much tissue was removed. Most orthopedic surgeries take between 6 to 12 weeks to recover. Some may take lesser time, depending on an individual’s injury.
What kind of pain will I have after surgery?
Many orthopedic surgeons use nerve blocks to make their patients’ recovery easier, which involves numbing the area they will operate. This means you can recover without feeling any pain or discomfort.
