Taking care of yourself after surgery
As each injury is unique, Dr Stewart will create a personalised post-operative care plan for you to ensure you get the best result from your surgery. Please note that hand therapy is an integral part of the recovery process, so please follow your set guidelines carefully. Scar tissue within the hand will cause problems with stiffness and reduced mobility, which will take 6 months to resolve with ongoing therapy.
Please remember to be patient and follow your care instructions closely to ensure a successful recovery.
