Recovery and Rehabilitation
After joint surgery, many patients chose to go to one of our Riverside rehabilitation centers rather than home for the first few days of recovery.
The advantages of a Riverside rehabilitation center:
- A physiatrist, an M.D. who specializes in physical and rehabilitative medicine, will direct your rehabilitation.
- You will have the benefit of working with our physical therapists several times a day.
- As you become increasingly mobile, you’ll learn to navigate everyday living without injuring your new joint, which can ease the frustration of recovery.
- You will continue to be closely monitored by medical staff.
Ask your surgeon or physician, if a rehabilitation center is right for you.
