How Can I Prepare for Podiatric Surgery?
Before and after a podiatric surgery, it is essential to follow your surgeon’s orders to the letter. Since the types of podiatric surgeries vary, your pre and post-operative care plan will depend on the specific type of surgery you receive.
However, there are a number of ways you can ensure a successful surgery regardless of the procedure:
- Maintain your fitness levels where possible and practical
- Avoid smoking, especially 2 weeks prior to surgery
- Make sure you’re prepared to rent/purchase assistive devices if necessary
- If you’ll need crutches or a walker post-surgery, practice using them at home
