While it might seem a little early, you should start planning now for your rehabilitation after surgery. Doing this now will ensure you’ll have all the support and strength you need to get back to your normal routine. Talk with your surgeon and their team about the kind of rehabilitation you’ll need after the surgery so you can:
- Identify the most convenient location
- Schedule pre-rehabilitation, or prehab, which is a unique program offered at MedStar facilities to help get you ready for your surgery
- Meet your therapy team
- Arrange your transportation needs for any postoperative appointments
Remember, we’re here for you, and we’ll work with you to help you plan for rehab after surgery.
