FOLLOWING SURGERY

You will wake following surgery in the recovery area. The goal of modern anaesthetic techniques is for you to wake up with little, to no pain. After many arthroscopic procedures, including ACL reconstruction and rotator cuff repair, you will be discharged home the same day. If you need to stay overnight, you will be transferred to the ward.

At the time of discharge from hospital you will be given details of your rehabilitation plan, work certificates, and instructions for any exercises to do at home. Copies of your operation notes and a rehabilitation plan will be sent directly to your physiotherapist.

A follow-up appointment will be made and you will be advised of the time.
