Septoplasty

Recovery after Septoplasty

Septoplasty is generally accomplished as an outpatient procedure which means you can go home on the same day after the influence of anesthesia has worn off.

Your nose will likely be swollen, painful, and packed with cotton to stop bleeding. The packing will be taken a day or two after surgery.

Limiting vigorous physical activities will help minimize swelling and promote healing. Your physician will prescribe pain medications in case you need one.

Total Knee Replacement

Recovery

Recovery times vary from patient to patient depending on the individual’s health and the type of surgery. It is best to comply with the instructions given by your surgeon regarding knee care after the procedure.

After the surgery, your nurse will take care of you in your room specially managing your pain and following your surgeon’s orders.

There will be a significant amount of dressing on your knee to protect your wound. Drains will be positioned at the surgical site to help empty excess fluid inside the wound.

Total Knee Replacement

Partial or Half Knee Replacement

If you only have one damaged knee, you will need a partial or half knee replacement. This procedure uses a smaller incision and has less bone being removed. It is an ideal procedure for one in four individuals with osteoarthritis.

Half knee replacements require a shorter hospital stay and recovery period. Blood transfusions maybe rarely needed. Also, this procedure generally results in more natural knee movement so you can be more active compared to a total knee replacement surgery.
