The purpose of these guides is to provide you with more information as to what to expect along the road to recovery, and what you can do to prevent any complications and maximize your outcomes. Although the healthcare team will assist you in your recovery, YOU AND YOUR FAMILY are the most important members of the team. We believe knowledge and preparation as to what to expect pre- and post-operatively will make your recovery easier.
