Primary Steps of recovery from Hip/Knee Surgery

Recognizing post-operative symptoms early and initiating orthopedic rehabilitation care are essential to gain the full benefit of a Hip/Knee Surgical Procedure

An analysis is done to understand the existing condition, assess the risks, and predict a prognosis

Objectives are set based on mutually agreeable goals. The family can closely interact with the physician to drive the care plan

The care plan is driven by a combination of different specialties including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, skilled nursing, medical nutrition, emotional coaching

The care plan is constantly monitored to evaluate the improvement and to rule out any complications

Why is Rehab necessary after hip/knee surgery?

After Hip or knee replacement surgery, considerable therapy is needed to relieve the pain of the surgery itself and to train the leg muscles that bear the weight.

Post Hip or Knee replacement surgeries, there is a chance of post-operative complications. The patient must be kept under constant supervision to check for fluid retention, inflammation, or reddening of skin irritation near the region of the surgery.

The muscles around the area of the surgery often stiffen due to the trauma of the surgery and must be conditioned back to normal function.

After completion of the surgery, the patient must be retrained in simple life skills, for example, climbing the stairs, moving on ramps, dressing up, or using the toilet. These activities require therapy and assistance until the patient becomes self-sufficient.

Starting to walk improperly after surgery can have adverse outcomes in the future. It is important to relearn proper gait when you learn to walk again.

A special diet is often necessary for the optimum recovery following a hip or knee replacement. A trained dietitian at a rehab facility teaches the patients about the importance of healthy and nutritious foods.

Specific conditions that require orthopedic rehabilitation are:

  • Hip or knee replacement surgeries
  • Fractures
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Degenerative joint diseases

YWe aim at a 360-degree holistic recovery through our multidisciplinary team that includes: Orthopedic Surgeons, Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists, Skilled nurses, dieticians, prosthetists, psychologists, and skilled nurses.

Our orthopedic rehab patients are monitored 24x7 with a timely assessment of risk factors. We continuously evaluate the performance indicators and keep altering the program to suit the individual requirements. Our comprehensive strategies enable us to keep track of every aspect of recovery and ensure the prevention of complications.

We recognize that the impairment of functional abilities can inflict significant trauma on an individual. We ensure the active involvement of family members and guided individual and group therapy sessions with experienced psychologists. Furthermore, our care centers have a motivating and sustaining environment, regular recreational and activity therapy sessions, and the prevalence of an empowering attitude that helps in accelerated and holistic recovery.

A family member or the primary caregiver is always educated to play an active role in the recovery plan. The objectives of the treatment are confirmed and driven by the family's agreement. The physician closely interacts with the family throughout the care plan and trains them to handle any special needs of the patient at home after discharge.

After hip or knee replacement surgery, significant therapy is needed to ease the pain of the surgery and to train the muscles of that leg to bear that weight. Muscles often stiffen due to the trauma of the surgery and must be conditioned back to normal life. Our intensive 360-degree approach aims at rebuilding your muscle tone, strength, endurance, flexibility, and mobility while providing adequate pain relief.

Our recovery program helps in retraining the patient in simple self-sufficient skills like learning to climb the stairs, move on ramps, dress up, and use the toilet. Regaining proper technique is as important as relearning how to walk. Starting to walk improperly after the sugery can have detrimental outcomes in the future.
With the help of constrained exercises, traction training, a range of motion therapy exercises, state-of-the-art equipment, and an experienced multidisciplinary team, we ensure the rebuilding of your muscle tone, strength, endurance, flexibility, and mobility to help you return to normal life.
