Physical and Occupational Therapy

We try to provide most patients with physical therapy the afternoon of surgery. During these sessions, you will learn:

  • Exercises for after surgery
  • Getting in and out of bed 
  • Walking using cane, walker, or crutches
  • Going up and down stairs

Occupational Therapy sessions will:

  • Teach you dressing techniques
  • Recommend equipment you may need to maintain any post-surgical precautions
  • Recommend techniques you can use while performing self care activities including dressing, bathing, toileting, home tasks and transferring to and from a car
  • Provide guidance on using the cane, walker or crutches
