Knee, hip and spine postoperative physiotherapy

~ Postoperative Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation

For the success of a surgical intervention, not only well executed surgical procedure is needed, but also correctly performed physiotherapy and rehabilitation.

Our goal is to offer you a customised postoperative rehabilitation and physiotherapy program to maximise the benefits of a successful surgery, maximise the joint function, speed up the recovery time, enabling you to return back to a full and active life.

Most of the NHS patients are discharged just 3-5 days after the surgery, provided with early physiotherapy advice and only limited ambulatory physio input following the discharge. This usually provides patient with prolonged recovery path.

You can start planning your residential postoperative rehabilitation and physiotherapy stay at one of our partnering centres already prior to your surgery.

Right after my first meeting with the doctor, I knew I was in good hands.

“The doctor is fantastic, she treated me thoroughly every day and helped me with both my physical and mental wellbeing in a very professional way. I am after a hip replacement and after the complication that arose during the surgery, the doctor set up a therapeutic program and helped me to recover well.
