Your initial post-op visit is usually scheduled two weeks after your surgery with Ryan Murphy, PA-C, or James Bennet, PA-C. This visit may include:
- Removing stitches or staples
- Assessing your incision
- Reviewing your pain medication needs
- Writing an order for outpatient physical therapy
It is your responsibility to choose your physical therapy location. Patients in a skilled nursing facility or rehab center will receive physical therapy services at the facility. Once you are discharged home from rehab, you will begin outpatient physical therapy. Your subsequent post-op visit is eight weeks after surgery. This appointment is generally scheduled with your surgeon.
