From the time where you commit to the procedure an experienced team of professionals will be on hand to help you get the best possible results from your surgery. Your team may consist of:
Your physiotherapist will tailor an exercise program to assist you with walking, general mobility, strengthening exercises and range of motion. The physiotherapist will track your progress and ensure that you are up, moving and getting the most favourable result possible from your procedure.
The role of the occupational therapist is to teach you how to modify your activities of daily living, maximise your safety, and have access to the equipment to assist you in this.
Your surgeon will provide general information about your condition and advise you of the operation that best suits your needs. Your surgeon will perform the procedure and monitor your progress post-operatively.
Your dietician will work with you throughout your hospital stay to ensure that any special nutritional needs are met.
This is the medical specialist who will assess you and offer advice on the anaesthetic options available. After administering the anaesthetic your anaesthetist will remain present during the procedure, monitoring and caring for you. Together with the surgeon, your anaesthetist may also be involved in your post-operative pain and medical management.
A team of qualified nurses will care for you throughout your hospital stay, you are encouraged to ask questions or express any concerns to the nursing staff at any time.
