Postoperative Instruction Packet
Your surgeon’s office will mail your postoperative packet to your home
7–10 days prior to surgery. It will contain the following:
Medications: The prescription will not contain refills, as your
pain medication will be reassessed at your first postoperative
Instructions for after your surgery.
Physical Therapy Prescription: Instructions will be included on
when to start your physical therapy. We strongly recommend
making your appointment in advance so that your therapy can be
started when recommended by your surgeon.
If you have any questions regarding this preoperative packet, please do
not hesitate to call our Center at 866-670-OUCH (6824).
