Successful surgery is a combination of appropriate and skillful surgical techniques or procedures, proper nursing care and finally a comprehensive rehabilitation program.
To ensure a successful outcome after your surgery, your physiotherapy usually begins in the hospital typically by showing you how to manage swelling and pain, start walking, minimize complications such as chest infection and DVT (blood clots).
