Recovery

Rehab Exercises

Rehab is not usually necessary with our enhanced recovery program after hip and knee joint replacements.

However there are some patients who live alone and cant go home. They will be sent to rehab until safe to return home. Dr. Nizam will discuss this before surgery.

Exercises for particular surgical procedures are usually in the booklet sent before surgery.

Diet

It is important that you read Dr. Nizam’s booklet before the relevant surgery which highlights how to boost your energy reserves before surgery to achieve optimal outcomes.

If you have any dietary concerns or have diabetes, please let our staff/physician/anaesthetist know.

Follow ups

Follow up appointments are usually made before the patient is discharged home from hospital. However if it is a weekend, the patients are kindly asked to ring on the Monday (for day cases procedures).
