After Spine Surgery

 

Many patients believe they have crossed the threshold once the procedure is over. In actuality, the procedure is most often the easiest part of the surgical process. During the recovery process, the patient has the opportunity to take control of their care. By doing so, patients can have a significant effect on their outcome, and can influence the benefit of the procedure.

 

Immediately following the procedure, you will awaken in the recovery room. Still groggy from the anesthesia, many patients do not remember this area well. Once the anesthesia has worn off, you will return to your room on the main patient floor. Here you will be reunited with family and friends. Usually the immediate time following surgery is relaxed, however with many procedures physical therapy will begin immediately.

 

Dedicated patients who closely adhere to the outlined therapy protocol tend to achieve significantly improved results when compared to patients who fail to complete their therapy. It is important that you understand the goals of therapy and what is expected of you. Discuss these with your physical therapist.
