It commences from the initial consultation with the surgeon. Following the consultation our team will be in contact with you to organise a pre-operative anaesthetist consultation, a physician consultation and a physiotherapist assessment.
A 10 day care package begins on the day of surgery consisting of transport to hospital from home, hospital stay following surgery, discharge (usually on third day following surgery) and home care by Home Support Services for 7 days (as required). Some patients may need further care following discharge requiring transfer to a rehabilitation centre and will not need Home Support Services home care.
This is followed by physiotherapy sessions as part of the JRC Care Pathway (6 treatments included in total as part of the Pathway).
All patient requirements and recovery times do vary. Important to note is that the 10 days of treatment, commences on the day of your surgery.
