Physical Therapy and Surgery Rehabilitation

Cynthia Laportilla, Physical Therapist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says physical therapy is very important after surgery: "Any surgeon anywhere would say that without the therapy part of the equation, the surgery may even possibly be a failure. It's a successful surgery to successful therapy that should hopefully bring you to the highest level of outcome that we can anticipate."

She also says the whole point of having joint replacement surgery is for you to be better than you were before; it should work better than it did before you had the surgery, and then as you proceed in your rehabilitative process it should just continue to get better.
